SMALL AND SAFE DOOR LOCKING MECHANISM

The space available for safety engineering and the time allocated to wiring equipment are both steadily decreasing. Treotham is therefore supplementing its product range with a compact, Euchner transponder-coded door locking mechanism designed for use on small, lightweight doors and flaps.

Thanks to its compact dimensions of 120 x 36 x 25mm, the door locking mechanism CTM is particularly simple to integrate into a machine’s design. The innovative ball actuator supported on an elastomer bearing can secure doors with extremely small pivoting radii. This type of guard locking offers maximum flexibility to the design engineer.

The bistable guard locking function of the CTM ensures that guard locking remains in its current state if the power fails or the installation is switched off; in other words, a locked door will stay locked, and an unlocked door can be opened and closed as needed. People can therefore no longer be locked in unintentionally if the power fails.

The CTM’s intelligent communication capabilities future-proof it for Industry 4.0. For example, it can simply be connected in series with other Euchner devices. The integrated interface additionally permits connection to the new Euchner evaluation unit ESM-CB, which then forwards the data via I/O link to the higher-level control system.

Safety specialists at Euchner have complemented the standard CTM with a hygienic version for use in the food and packaging industries. This version consists exclusively of food-safe materials, all plastics are approved according to EU Regulation (EC) No 10/2011, and it features smooth surfaces, rounded edges and materials resistant to cleaning agents.
