Skorpion – Trapped Key Interlocking with Key Exchange
Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, Skorpion, IDEM Safety Switches new Trapped Key Exchange System has been developed to provide extremely robust mechanical coded key safeguarding and interlocking for hazardous machinery. The system works on the principle of releasing coded mechanical keys in a pre-determined sequence to ensure machine power is isolated before any access can be gained to hazardous or dangerous machinery. After the machine control has been isolated (first key turned in the system) the key from the isolator can then be used to release other trapped keys to enable access to the guarded areas. After release of the first key (power isolation) safeguarding can be achieved without the need for electrical wiring, this makes the system ideal for use in harsh environments.
