Fortress Interlocks' eGard is a fully modular approach to controlling access to hazardous machinery and equipment. In addition to providing features that are required in a gate switch, eGard also includes electrical operator controls as standard modules. Modules such as stop and start switches and indicator lights can be included in one unit with or without gate switches, eliminating the wiring and connection time associated with control panels. The unit is designed to fit straight onto standard extruded aluminum machine guarding without additional brackets.
