Multifunctional Gate Box MGB-AP

  • Auxiliary release
  • Connection via cable entry, M20 x 1.5 or plug connector
  • Plug connector connection, either HC26, M23 (RC18) or M12, 12-pin
  • Operation of guard locking via IMP as control input on PLC (only 3 mA)
  • Monitoring outputs
    • OD = ON when door is closed.
    • OT = Bolt tongue inserted into the evaluation module (in case of guard locking devices ready for control of the solenoid. In case of interlocking devices corresponds to safety outputs)
    • OL = Guard locking solenoid locked in position (in case of guard locking devices: corresponds to safety outputs)
    • OI = Diagnostics, there is a fault

Economical wiring according to standards

The family MGB-AP is particularly suitable for the protection of individual safety doors. If series connection is not necessary, wiring can then be saved. This version has different timing to the AR version.

Interlocking or guard locking? Functions of the versions MGB-L0, MGB-L1 and MGB-L2 compared

Interlocking devices (MGB-L0, without guard locking)

Together with a handle module, the interlocking module makes it possible to interlock the control of movable guards. The combination also serves as a mechanical door stop at the same time.

The following switch-on condition applies to the safety outputs OA and OB:

  • Guard closed (but can be opened at any time)
  • Bolt tongue inserted into the interlocking module

The interlocking module detects the position of the guard and the position of the bolt tongue. The bolt tongue in the handle module is moved into and out of the interlocking module by actuating the door handle.

Guard locking devices (MGB-L1 and MGB-L2)

Together with a handle module, the locking module makes it possible to lock movable guards. The combination also serves as a mechanical door stop at the same time.

The following switch-on condition applies to the safety outputs OA and OB:

  • Guard closed
  • Bolt tongue inserted into the locking module
  • Locking arm in locking position (the door cannot be opened)

The locking module detects the position of the guard and the position of the bolt tongue. The position of the guard locking is also monitored. The bolt tongue in the handle module is moved into and out of the locking module by actuating the door handle. When the bolt tongue is fully inserted into the locking module, the locking arm locks the bolt tongue in this position. Depending on version, this locking is by spring force or solenoid force.

  • Version MGB-L1: The locking arm is held in the locked position by spring force and is unlocked by solenoid force (closed-circuit current principle, mechanically locked).
  • Version MGB-L2: The locking arm is held in the locked position by solenoid force and is unlocked by spring force when the solenoid is switched off (open-circuit current principle, electrically locked).

Connection to evaluation units or safe control systems

The safety system MGB can be connected to almost any safe evaluation unit or to any safe control system. For this purpose the short circuit monitoring on the control system is disabled – this function is performed by the MGB. Performance Level e is of course retained.
