CKS Key Adapter


The EUCHNER Key Adapter CKS allows authorized personnel to start a hazardous area only with a valid key inserted into the key adapter. Before authorized personnel can enter an installation, the CKS key is withdrawn from the key adapter and brought along into the hazardous area. If safety guards are now closed, the installation cannot be started. In addition to use as a lockout, the CKS system is ideally suited as a key transfer system or for assigning access rights to stop a production process.

Keys are available in red and are sold separately.
CKS Key Adapters require the use of a Unicode evaluation unit.
