Safety switch locking function increases door stability

The 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[ME1]  efficiency.

The 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.
