With the hybrid technology of the GS-M Series, users can choose whether the safety signals are being sent when the door is closed or closed and locked. The unique design offers the option to be a locking type (500/900 N locking force) or a simple non-contact interlock with the bonus of a built-in magnetic catch.

Keyence’s GS-M Series safety door interlocks is designed specifically to address the most frustrating issues related to door interlocks, including misalignment due to door sag and machine vibration. Its flush design, large actuator, and built-in spring combine to provide a level of forgiveness and flexibility not seen in conventional interlocks. Furthermore, dedicated units for sliding and hinged doors (from small access panels to full body doors) further ensure alignment and simplify mounting.

With its highly visible indicator lights and small footprint, the physical design of the GS-M clearly stands out among other door interlocks on the market today. This series also features an integrated controller and a unique wiring saving unit (GS-T01), which optimizes the GS-M’s daisy-chain ability and simplifies the wiring process. The GS-M can also mount directly to the machine frame through its dedicated brackets, eliminating the need to fabricate a custom mounting setup.
