AutomationDirect has added Dold trapped key systems to its line of safety products. A trapped key system uses a series of mechanical locks and keys to control the access of gates or doors to running equipment or machines, ensuring safe access to those machines.
Dold trapped key system gate sets provide a full trapped key safety system, in one- to five-gate sets. Available in either standard (SX) or solenoid-locking (ZRH) versions, all keys and their corresponding receivers and modules are unique within a set.
The SX-series of standard gate sets are 316L stainless steel body interlock safety switches with one normally-closed and two forced opening normally-open/normally-closed changeover contacts.
The ZRH-series solenoid gate sets are interlocking safety switches with 24 VAC/DC solenoid power to unlock, one normally-closed and two forced opening normally-open/normally-closed changeover contacts for actuator tongue (key) status and two normally-closed and one forced opening normally-open/normally-closed changeover contacts for solenoid status.
Accessories available include door actuators, captive safety key sets, key modules for key exchange box setup, tongue key actuators (purchased separately from the gate sets).
Steel mounting plates are offered in eight pre-fabricated sizes plates that are sized to easily mount various configured trapped key stations; mounting plate size depends on size and number of modules in your application.
Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. Today I am going to show you our new safety trapped key products from the brand Dold. A trapped key system uses a series of mechanical locks and keys to control the access of gates or doors to running equipment or machines, ensuring safe access to those machines. Systems are set up in a predefined sequence, preventing accidental access to running equipment. An operator must shut down machinery and lock it down, then remove the key and use the same key to unlock the door or doors that access the machinery. Keys are trapped and released in a sequential order. These are sold in 1 to 5 doors and come with or without solenoid locking versions. Several door actuators styles are available. One is needed for each door and they come in S-Actuator for straight in tongue, C-Actuator is spring loaded for flexible mounting and CS-Actuator provides a spring return sliding action for manual door opening. All keys and their corresponding modules are unique within a set. The main station has a switch module and optional solenoid actuator. Door stations have mechanical, rather than electrical systems to provide safety for one or a series of gates. This system allows the control of a series of lock points. Human operation of locking/unlocking provides first hand, observable safety. The trapped key system is cost-effective for multiple locks over a large area and eliminates the cost of running electrical wiring over long distances. Choose accessories to expand on the basic door sets like padlock styles, safety key set styles and more.
