Fortress unveiling stainless steel interlock switches for high purity applications at Automatica

07 June 2016

Industrial safety specialist Fortress Interlocks is unveiling its amGardS40 stainless steel interlock switches for high purity applications at this year’s Automatica trade fair in Munich. The company will be in Hall B5, Booth 105. Automatica is the leading trade fair for industrial automation and mechatronics. 

The amGardS40 is designed specifically for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical processing industries; it is also suitable for outdoor use. Manufactured from 316 stainless steel and modular in design, the amGardS40 range can be configured to suit many other industrial applications.

Configurations for the amGardS40 include: 
• Solenoid locking safety switches
• Non-solenoid tongue switches
• Mechanical trapped key interlocks
• Machine control stations

The switches are supplied in enclosures sealed to IP69K, allowing them to be pressure washed at high temperatures; they also have a retention force of 10,000N – the highest currently available on the market – so are ideal for ensuring guard doors are held closed until machines and/or processes are in a safe condition. Each module is just 40mm in width, so can easily be fitted to 40mm guarding sections or other areas where space is limited.
