|Product Category||Sensors, Transmitters, Guards > Position / Proximity Switches|
|Subject||Safety Interlock Switch|
|Codes and Standards||
|Scope and Result||The GKey4 series guard interlocking switch can be classified as type 4 in accordance with ISO 14119.
In combination with external safety devices it can be used as PDDB in accordance with
IEC 60947-5-3 in safety applications up to SIL 3 and Cat. 4 / PL e in accordance with
IEC 62061 and ISO 13849-1.
|Specific Provisions||In PL e / SIL 3 applications, in which a periodical demand of the safety function is not ensured by regular operational sequences (≥ 1/month), the safety function has to be tested manually at least once per month.
For cascaded systems with series connection of multiple interlocking devices ISO TR 24119 has to be considered, since the maximum achievable safety level could be reduced to lower than PL e and SIL 3.
The solenoid locking mechanism is intended to ensure process reliability and not personal protection.
