Multi-input safety switches with key blockade - GKS series

Multi-input safety switches with key blockade - GKS series

The introduction of the GKS product marks a significant new product class for Honeywell. Honeywell’s switching expertise has been applied to a cost-effective, trapped key safety interlock switch. This product allows OEMs to hold a door or gate closed while a hazard still exists. This is particularly important where there is moment
um in the machine. In other words, when the machine is signaled to stop, the momentum in the machine can mean that parts of the machine are still moving and pose an injury risk if the access gate or door is not held closed. Global approvals and standards are important to Honeywell’s customers; therefor e, the GKS product conform to
the requirements of IEC60947-5-1 and carries cULus, CE and CCC approvals

FEATURES:
• Global approvals (CE, cULus, CE, and CCC)
• Glass-filled polyester body
• Power-to-lock and power-to-unlock schemes for key trap
• Flexible switching arrangement
• 24 Vdc, 110 Vac, and 230 Vac coil voltages
• Over-ride mechanism in cover
• Head may be rotated into 4 different positions
• Three conduit openings (knock-out style)
• Switch position provides status .

Benefits
• Product may be applied to most applications worldwide
• Tough, cost-effective, double-insulated enclosure
• Choice of key trapping methodology
• Four contacts that can be arranged in any configuration
• Multiple voltages provide for every geography
• Has a method to open door (in case of power loss, etc.)
• One part number may be used for multiple applications
• Flexible wiring options
• Can diagnose status of gate/door (gate/door closed and locked, gate/door closed and unlocked, gate/door open)

Caution
There will be minimum volume requirements for unreleased
options.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS
• Woodworking machinery
• Printing/paper finishing equipment
• Plastic molding equipment
• Packaging machinery
• Bailing
• Pumping equipment
• Semiconductor manufacturing equipment
• Packaging wrapping
• Specialty equipment
• Machine tool
• Robot cell

LED OPTION

The built-in LED is suitable for direct installation in the M20 x1.5/0.5 in NPT thread, one of the three cable entries in the
GKS safety switch. The built-in LED can indicate to the user whether the solenoid is unlocked/locked or whether the door is open/closed. The switching element can be wired individually.

NOTE:
This ‘truth table’ shows the switch status in various conditions. In each column, there is a change in switch contact
position from the previous column. It is possible to determine the status of the switch by examining the combination against the table. This can be essential for operational reasons. For instance, the machine should not be started until the key is not only in the head, but is also trapped.
 
The first column depicts the key inserted and the key trapped in that position – this would be the typical run position for the machine – all doors closed. The second column illustrates the key inserted, but not trapped – this would be the safe-to-open the door position (as determined by the application’s safety scheme). The third column shows the key extracted or door-open position
