New Safety Switch from Rockwell Automation Provides Interlocking on All Types of Guard Doors

December 15, 2020

The new Allen-Bradley Guardmaster 440G-EZ electromagnetic interlocking switch can help protect people, processes and equipment. By providing the physical interlocking of guard doors, the safety switch allows access to a potentially hazardous area only when the area is safe. This can help keep people safe and protect a process from unplanned downtime to improve productivity and efficiency.

The 440G-EZ electromagnetic safety switch uses a power-to-lock (PTL) magnetic locking function, which increases door stability, and reduces misalignment and nuisance tripping. With its high holding force and misalignment tolerance, the 440G-EZ switch is intended for use on all types of guard doors.

The 440G-EZ switch has a low-profile housing design. It has multiple mounting and connection options, including 5-pin or 8-pin M12 micro quick-disconnect pigtails for optimal installation flexibility.

To simplify installation, troubleshooting and maintenance, the switch offers onboard LED diagnostics, indicating switch status when the state of the output signal-switching devices are locked or unlocked.

The 440G-EZ safety switches are TÜV-certified up to Cat 4, SIL 3, PLe – the highest level of safety for guard position.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
