Safety guard-locking switches are a key component in any process or manufacturing system, ensuring both machine and personnel safety while improving process efficiency.
Rockwell Automation has introduced the Allen-Bradley 440G-EZ Electromagnetic Guard Locking Switch for use in existing safety applications. It allows system designers to effectively provide safety, stream-line maintenance and reduce the nuisance tripping caused by normal machine behaviour. This is achieved by the absence of a physical lock and the adoption of an electromagnetic switch, while providing enough holding force.
The 440G-EZ Electromagnetic Guard Locking Switch is simple to install and align the electromagnetic switch since there is no tongue actuator and has a power to lock function.
Other benefits include improved efficiency by minimising downtime and long restart delays and reduced scrap wastage.
