How easy is it to install a Heavy Duty Interlock?


Installing products to guarding can be laborious and time consuming. Reduce installation time and costs with the heavy duty mounting plate range designed for max robustness to safeguard your hazardous space and just two fixings per plate.


Plates are die cast aluminium and are suitable for both hinged and sliding guards. They can be pre-fitted to your interlock/actuator when ordered together, or ordered separately if required.






Mounting Plates to Reduce Installation


Mounting solutions come in a range of lengths for a variety of configurations and are designed for easy and simple fitting to machine guarding.



Reduce Electrical Installation with Pre-wiring


The heavy duty range can be wired to a variety of M12 and M23 connectors to accommodate customer specifications. M12 solutions are offered in 5,8,10, and 12 pin, and M23 connectors in 12 or 19 pin.




Pre-wiring your interlock can shave significant time off of the electrical system integration, turning a time consuming wiring task into plug and play for a fraction of the cost. Electrical installation time and componentry can be significantly reduced for interlocking systems with the use of networked technology such as EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and EtherCAT.


Fortress also offers the possibility to order matching cables available for standard connections in lengths of 5m, 10m, and 20m. This also includes cables for the networked products for communication with industrial network protocols.
