Castell Safety - Trapped Key Safety Interlocks, Lockout Tagout Equipment and Drive-away PreventionCastellApplications

Applications - Machine Guarding - Pallet removal safety system - trapped key and perimeter guarding

Product Usage: KS20, KS20ES

The safety system requirement is to ensure that when the pallet is to be unloaded, the robot will stop for the duration that the forklift truck is in the area, ensuring safe removal. Access is also required to the robot via a side gate when the robot needs to be put into a teach mode.

Condition 1

The robot is active and loading the waiting pallet. The access point is locked closed and the light curtain is active protecting the opening to the outfeed conveyor.

Condition 2

The fork-lift approaches the outfeed conveyor and mutes the light curtain via the inductive loop mounted in the floor. The robot ceases operation and allows safe access. The forklift collects the pallet and withdraws. Once the forklift has retracted out of the protected area the light curtain will become active once more. The robot will only resume operation when a restart button has been depressed on the control panel.

For personnel to gain access through the gate the robot is stopped via the 'KS20ES' trapped key unit. Key 'A' is inserted into the isolation lock of the access lock 'AIE', which allows the release of the personnel key, key 'B'. Key 'B' is taken into the area by the operative. This key can be used as a personnel key or as a teach key which is inserted into the 'KS20' within the area. This will enable the robot into a tech mode only.
