The supermagnet controls the opening of movable machine guards in harsh industrial environments with electromagnets and can prevent unintentional opening of guards. It controls, in conjunction with a delay module, the opening of guards at the end of the machine cycle. The magnet complies with IP65 standards and ensures reliability in hostile environments, and its non-contact design facilitates less wear and higher tolerance to door misalignment. It’s available in two versions: power-off locking with a holding force of 30 decanewtons and power-on locking latching force of 50 decanewtons.
