New RH series tubular handles from Elesa offer a simple electrical cut-off for the safe opening of access panels on machine tools. This is achieved with an IP65 pushbutton interlock in a single or twin button configuration. FG16 variants feature electronic buttons while FG18 are pneumatic. On the electrical handles, an emergency stop button version is available.
Tubular handles in the RH series are available in stainless steel (FG-16), in aluminium and Technopolymer (FG-18). Elesa RH handles are designed in a bridge or pull-handle configuration and are suited to installation on machine tools, moulding machines or other processing equipment in food or petrochemical plants. Operation of the safety interlock is achieved by the push buttons, which are connected to the machine control system via a solenoid which operates the safety cut-off (FG-16). The door latching mechanism is only then released when all the equipment has been brought to a safe condition.
