Fortress Interlocks introduces a modular Emergency Stop

Fortress Interlocks has introduced a modular Emergency Stop E-stop into its eGard range of access and control products. The E-stop module can simply be combined with any controls, switches and or interlocks of the eGard range such as single LEDs, pushbuttons and key switches. The E stop can also be used with AS i systems and connection to an AS i monitor means that programming complex functions can be completed through a single monitor and the system cannot be modified without security passwords.

eGard is a modular system that simply clips together and provides a vast number of options including the addition of stop and start switches, indicator lights or gate switch modules and designed to fit straight on to a standard extruded aluminium machine guarding without the need for additional brackets. Ease of installation of the modules and unit, and an internal network that is self-configuring, provides huge cost savings to the specifier on wiring and installations. All eGard configurations can be easily connected to PLCs and mimic panels, or used on an AS-interface network.

Configuring E-stop functions in combination with other safety or control equipment through just one connector provides a cost effective and aesthetically pleasing safety system.

eGard is suitable for use in high risk applications up to SIL3 (EN/IEC 62061), Category 4 and PLe (EN/ISO 13849-1). For more information on the configurable E-stop please visit the company website at www.fortressinterlocks.com
