Introducing ATOM, our NEW RFID Safety Interlock

Fortress Interlocks has launched ATOM, a high-coded interlock with RFID (radio-frequency identification through the use of a high-coded actuator) and OSSD (Output Signal Switching Device) capabilities.

ATOM, part of Fortress’ ncGard product range, is an ultra-robust and compact interlock with high misalignment ideal for use in applications where precise fitment of guards is not achieved through design, manufacture or use and abuse. Designed to be an extremely robust and a long-lasting interlock that requires minimal maintenance, ATOM is resistant to shock and vibrations and offers a high level of protection against tampering.

Key features and benefits of the ATOM:

  • Solenoid controlled interlock which only allows access when you decide

  • High-coded RFID which prevents actuator substitution

  • Robust actuator design with high locking and retention force of 8kN

  • 140mm x 33mm ultra-compact mounting footprint, easy to mount with 2 x M5 screws

  • Safeguarding applications up to PLe and SIL3 rating

  • Provides OSSD outputs with Daisy-Chain connection of up to 8 ATOMs in series, reducing your installation costs 

  • High Mechanical Misalignment which allows for wider guarding positioning

  • Compact design for installation in discreet locations

  • Sealed to IP65 and IP67

  • TUV Safety Certification Pending
