Schmersal AZM40

Solenoid Lock Offers Strength in a Small Size

July 19, 2021
This Schmersal safety device incorporates an RFID sensor.

The AZM40 is a small, powerful electronic solenoid interlock. It measures just 1.5 × 4.75 × 0.7 in. (119.5 × 40 × 20 mm) and is designed to fit standard extruded profiles typically used in machine guard frames. It features a symmetrical housing and actuator approach of 180 deg., offering mounting flexibility on hinged or sliding guards which do not close at 90 deg. or those that open upwards to a 45-deg. angle.

The solenoid is strong for its size, offering 2,000 N locking force, and 40 N latching. Also, there is an integrated RFID sensor, which offers the option of individually coding the actuators for enhanced tamper resistance. Models are available for guard locking or process protection applications. Several LED status indicators are visible from three sides and make troubleshooting easier with flashing diagnostic codes.
