New safety switch eliminates risk of getting locked in

Treotham introduces a new safety switch from Euchner featuring an
additional bistable locking function.

In normal operation, the guard locking is controlled via an input
signal. When the operating voltage is switched off, the guard locking is
maintained in its current position, which keeps the safeguarded door either
locked or unlocked regardless of locking principle until power is restored.

Based on the proven principle of the CTP safety switch series, the new CTP‚ÄëBI
incorporates the bistable guard locking solenoid, which provides an additional
measure of protection by preventing an individual from getting accidentally
locked inside a guard locked door during service, maintenance or cleaning

The bistable function of the solenoid also prevents the deactivation of
guard locking in the event of a power failure. It is not possible to immediately
enter the danger area if there are over-travelling machine movements.
