A guarding system that protects workers and automation devices in a molding cell is now available from Fortress Interlocks Ltd., Erlanger, Ky. The eGard interlock system requires an operator to turn and remove a key from the door to the enclosure. When the key is removed, power is cut off to the protected area, allowing safe operator access. The interlock system also integrates the emergency stop into the door interlock, removing the need for a separate stop button and cable. Inserting the door key into two key switches inside the robot cell allows operating the robot at reduced power for programming. (859) 578-2390 • www.fortressinterlocks.com
