Micromax Specialists in Automation has launched a new range of Fortress Interlocks modular Gate Switches which are rugged stainless steel switches for high purity applications such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical processing. They are also suitable for harsh environments and outdoor applications. Manufactured from 316 stainless steel and modular in design, the amGardS40 range can be configured to suit many industrial applications.
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, making them a suitable option for ensuring guard doors are held closed until machines and processes are in a safe condition. Each module is 40mm in width, so can easily be fitted to 40mm guarding sections or other areas where space is limited.
