Dispatch: 3- 5 Days
The Olympus 4HD is a heavy duty solenoid controlled access lock available with either a stainless steel tongue actuator or a heavy duty handle. The Olympus 4HD is capable of supporting Category 4 safety systems through its 2n/c 1n/o contacts and is ideal for all types of hinging or sliding access points with a good tolerance for misaligned guarding. The unit is locked by the solenoid when it is de-energized and opened when energized. A mechanical key override facility for the solenoid comes standard. The Olympus 4HD is ideal for use on production cells and automated production and assembly lines where fast access is required.
The Castell Olympus Solenoid controlled access lock is typically used for machine isolation in applications where a machine has to finish a cycle prior to isolation.
A typical application of OLYMPUS solenoid controleld access lock is machine guarding. It is usually connected to power isolators via safety relays. When the machine is in operation the access door is locked via the de-energized solenoid in the OLYMPUS solenoid controlled access lock. To open the guard, the machine is instructed to stop via the control circuit. Once the machine has completed the cycle, an external signal is received by the solenoid. Retracting the tongue actuator will breake the contacts ensuring the power is locked out. The machine cannot be restarted until the door is closed and the tongue actuator is replaced in the OLYMPUS solenoid controlled access lock.
