Exchange Interlock

Product Model: H-EXiL

ENEX i-LOCK Series H-EXiL is the heavy industry Exchange Mechanical Trapped Key Safety Interlock product range. It is suitable for a wide range of applications such as HIPPS system change over, process system change over, complex high voltage shutdown switching systems and plant maintenance systems. The H-EXiL ‘Patented’ lock portions and keys allow for any combination of key sequence operational procedure systems. The basic principle of this safety equipment is to safely control the switch over between two different process systems by utilising a key sequence movements.

Each lock portion and rotary key is uniquely coded to allow a truly safe operating sequence procedure.

H-EXiL product range can be supplied with on/off switches and proximity limit sensors to confirm :
