Multiple Electrical Engineering Services (‘MEES’) designs, manufactures and installs electrical control systems for industrial machinery such a lathes, milling & grinding machines. In order to ensure overall safety, MEES counts on custom-built interlocks manufactured by Camlock Systems.
MEES is a NICEIC approved facilities management company, working primarily in mechanical & electrical engineering and air conditioning. Their services include planning, construction, fault diagnosis and maintenance of machines.
The electrical control system manufactured by MEES features a switch unit that ensures only suitably qualified personnel operate the machines and helps to protect manpower servicing or repairing them.
To meet the precise requirements of MEES, Camlock Systems provided a 10 pin interlock cylinder, fitted to a Kraus & Naimer CA40 40 AMP, 4 Pole Switch. The lock keeps the key trapped during usage and enables the user to remove it only when the machine is switched off. The key that operates a particular machine is identified by the colour of the key fob. This colour coding system also ensures that only personnel with suitable training and experience operate a specific machine.
Peter Boulton from MEES says: “We chose Camlock Systems because we had worked with them in the past and our experience was very positive. We especially appreciate the professional service.”
