Laser Interlock System Design Form

*Non-locking system is normal configuration; locking system used where interruption of the laser process is undesirable – eg operating theatres, production processes, long experiments.

*Doors which open in both directions

*For authorised entry and exit without interrupting the laser

*One way, two way or three way – for three way signs it must be possible to detect three distinct states of the laser. If in doubt use the one way signs

*Emergency stop / door release breakglasses are always fitted on locking systems for reasons of emergency access

Available interfaces: external beam shutter, interlock connector operator, interlocked mains supply – all available simultaneously

*In particular is it likely to be more than 10 A?

*In particular do any of the lasers exceed 20 W average output?
