IDEM Heavy Duty Trapped Key Safety Interlocks are Now Available at LC Automation

IDEM is one of the UK's largest manufacturers of Machine Safety Switches and we are pleased to announce their Skorpion Trapped Key Interlock System is now available from LC Automation.

Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, IDEM's System is available in a choice of Stainless Steel 316 or Mirror Finished Die Cast Metal. It has been developed to provide extremely robust mechanical coded key safeguarding and interlocking for hazardous machinery and applications, ensuring machine power is isolated before access can be gained to hazardous or dangerous machinery.

How does the system work?

The system works on the principle of releasing heavy duty coded mechanical keys in a pre-determined sequence to ensure machine power has been isolated before any access can be made into areas where hazards or dangerous machinery is present.

Once the machine control has been isolated (achieved by turning the first key in the system) the removed key from the isolator is then used to release other trapped keys to enable access to the guarded areas.

Following release of the first key (isolator) safeguarding is achieved without the need for expensive and time consuming electrical wiring - thus making the system perfect for use in harsh and challenging environments and applications.

The interlock on the guard is arranged so that the trapped key can only be released when the guard has been closed and locked - preventing the key from being returned to the power isolator (or control switch) before the machine guard is safe.
