Die Safety Block Electrical Interlock


Product Description

According to ANSI B11.19-2003, safety blocks “shall be interlocked with the machine to prevent actuation of hazardous motion of the machine.” The following interlock systems will satisfy this requirement. The electrical interlock system for die safety blocks must be interfaced into the control system so that when the plug is pulled, the power to the main drive motor and control is disconnected. If the machine has a mechanical energy source, such as a flywheel, it must come to rest before the die block can be inserted. The interlock system is available in a yellow plug with one contact or an orange plug with two contacts. The electrical interlock system for die safety blocks includes the plug, a 24-inch long chain, a receptacle, and an electrical mounting box.
