Trapped Key Interlocks for Robot Guarding Lock-out/Power Isolation

Tapeswitch Corporation

Trapped Key Interlocks Product Line Offers Robot Guarding System With  Power Isolation and Lock-Out For Doors, Gates, and Hatches.

From a simple to complex robot guarding application, Tapeswitch Corporation offers a full product line of trapped key interlocks for power isolation and lock-out that are configured with components to fit your exact guarding requirements, i.e.   machinery power type (run-down), access point structures - types (door,gate, hatch),  single through multiple access point requirements, control panel lock-out/power isolation requirements.

Trapped Key Interlocks are a robot  guarding solution for the control of hazardous energy, eliminating the need for a procedural lockout tag out system and are approved for such use in the US under the ANSI standard Z244.1 - Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout and Alternative Methods). 

Simple Machine Guarding Solutions:

Simple Robot Guarding Solution: The AIE is a double key, stainless steel, access interlock suitable for guarding on hinged and sliding doors, gates and fences.  The KS - power safe electrical switch is a key driven electrical switch suitable for the isolation or switching of low (20, 32, 63 or 150A) current. The key exchange units, such as X, Y, Z are for multiple access point machine guarding.

Complex Robot Guarding Solutions: The trapped key interlock product line is extensive, providing solutions for both power interlocking and control circuit interlocking, machinery with different power sources, even pneumatic and hydraulic, machinery with fixed or variable run-down times, different environments, full access control (meaning a person can’t be locked in access areas if gate is shut because the machine’s key is needed to start the interlocking process), and robotic machine guarding (where access must be restricted to the end of a cycle products).

Machine Guarding Component Durability Advantage:

The product line is well engineered and offers the competitive advantage of integrating unique key code configurations, heavy weight mechanical components, durable stainless steel keys and other safety guard accessories, such as key caps for extra protection from particulates, which can deter the mechanisms of the lock in normal conditions in most trapped key product lines.


Model: Ex: AIE + KS-20 + X System
