The Schmersal AZM170 series solenoid interlock is a robust machine safety solution designed to ensure secure power locking with a manual release option. This device features two actuating directions and includes one auxiliary contact alongside one safety contact for reliable performance. It employs an IDC method for terminal connection, ensuring a straightforward installation process with both normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contacts. The interlock is rated for a thermal test current of 6 A and can operate at a control voltage of 24 VAC/DC. It meets the utilisation categories AC-15 with a rating of 230 VAC at 4 A and DC-13 at 24 VDC also at 4 A, making it versatile for various industrial applications. As part of Schmersal's commitment to machine safety, this type of solenoid interlock is an essential component for any safety-conscious engineering project.
