Individual Coding & 1000N Holding Force

15 March 2013

Featuring an innovative interlocking system in the form of a Maltese cross, Schmersal’s AZM 300 solenoid interlock can be actuated from three sides, making it suitable for universal application.

 A single model is suitable for use on revolving doors with left-hand side and right-hand side hinges, and on sliding doors.

Another highly practical advantage of this feature is that the user does not need any additional add-on parts such as a door stop or a latching element, as these functions have been integrated in the interlock. The unit’s adjustable latching force means it can be smoothly adjusted to suit individual requirements.

An integrated RFID sensor detects the identification and the coding of the actuator, so the user can choose three different types of coding. On the basic version, the sensor accepts any suitable target. A second coded version only reacts to an individually assigned target (the teaching procedure can be repeated any number of times), while a third variant only accepts the target that was taught upon the first activation.

In this way, the user can choose the most suitable coding variant for the application and provide a deterrent against tampering. The AZM 300 also meets the requirements of Performance Level e or Safety Integrity Level 3.
