Treotham Automation Pty Ltd presents a new machine safety control system designed for simple, intuitive use by operators in industrial environments.

The Eichner multifunctional gate box from Treotham Automation is an interlocking guard system designed for the protection of safety doors on machines and systems. 

Featuring an integrated lockout mechanism with optional escape release handle, and optional buttons and indicators, Treotham’s machine safety control system is easily mounted on frames, grilles or profiles. 

The handle can be mounted level or rotated 90, 180 or 270 degrees without disassembly; once linked to the machine controls, the access door will be prevented from opening until the machine has safely stopped.

The Eichner multifunctional gate box can be turned into a small control terminal by adding start, enable, emergency stop and other functions to the basic handle/lock module. This enables the unit to be used for interlocking, guard locking, escape release, and various machine functions such as start/stop and emergency stop among others. The modular design means that additional features can be easily added at a later date.

The optional escape release is intuitive to operate and enables persons to exit the danger zone quickly and easily. When working in the restricted area, the bolt tongue can be locked with up to three padlocks in the integrated lockout bar, preventing unintentional activation of the interlocking/guard locking.

The system complies with Safety Level e in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1 or SIL3 in accordance with EN 62061, and EN 1088 for protection against tampering. An LED display provides continues information on system status.
