Nov. 10, 2017 – The Pilz PSENsgate safety gate monitoring system features safety gate monitoring, safe guard locking and control elements in one system.
According to the company, the interlocking and guard locking system prevents the safety gates to the danger zone from opening while the hazardous machine is switched on. Also included with the non-contact switch are additional functions such as e-stop and escape release. The safety gate in the danger zone is unlocked when the hazardous machine is stopped, enabling easier access for cleaning staff once the shift has ended, for example. The guard locking element is disengaged from the bolt tongue when there is a high signal at the terminals.
