ATOM RFID Safety Interlock from Fortress

ATOM RFID Safety Interlock from Fortress


ATOM is a compact and ultra-robust RFID high coded solenoid interlocking device. As typical with products from Fortress Interlocks, ATOM is externally approved and is suitable for applications up to PLe (Cat. 4). The metal housing and high retention force then suits ATOM for heavier industry applications.

High misalignment in the self-centering actuator covers any movement and inaccuracy in hinged and sliding door machine guarding. Additionally, ATOM’s head has an open design manufactured in stainless steel to prevent dust, dirt and corrosion from impacting performance.

Available in multiple hardware variants, the device can be configured for applications where hazards persist after machinery is powered off. Multiple units can also be connected together with OSSD (Output Signal Switching Device)functionality preventing fault masking. The Large LED lens at the base provides clear state indication from all angles and at a distance.
