New Honeywell Commercial Door Interlock Switch Enhances Safety, Improves
Energy Efficiency, Reduces Nuisance Stoppages, and Saves Customers Time and
MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 11, 2013 - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) announced today it has
expanded its portfolio of RelialignT door interlock switches with a version
designed specifically for commercial applications, the Commercial Door
Interlock Switch, CDI Series. This new device is Honeywell's alternative to
large, installation-intensive interlocks and OEM custom-made products.
Potential applications for the CDI Series include commercial swing-door
elevators, dumbwaiters, and platform/vertical lifts.
Honeywell's RelialignT Commercial Door Interlock Switches are designed to
hold the swing door in place and prevent it from being opened when not
desired, such as when the platform lift is not present at the door. A number
of design features, including a door-closure retention cam, contribute to
the CDI Series' enhanced safety, reduction of nuisance stoppages, simplified
wiring, and ease of installation. Reliable and smooth operation is enhanced
by the use of a metal key that is less susceptible than plastic to bending
and breakage. The lack of open or exposed contacts minimizes the possibility
of owners making manual adjustments.
"Honeywell's Commercial Door Interlock Switches save customers time and
reduce cost by eliminating engineering, procurement, and installation
associated with custom OEM-made products," said Maria Cancino, senior global
product marketing manager for Honeywell Sensing and Control. "In addition,
the CDI Series' non-intrusive design eliminates the need to destroy the door
or frame when installing the device, helping to reduce installation costs."
Featuring a custom internal solenoid control, RelialignT Commercial Door
Interlock Switches can reduce complexity of the host controller, trim power
consumption, extend solenoid life, and reduce solenoid "time outs," reducing
customer aggravation. The CDI Series includes a
manual override for easy actuation without user hazard that reduces the
potential for call-backs. To meet customer and industry requirements, the
RelialignT Series is compliant with ASME A17.1 & 18.1, and cULus.
Honeywell's RelialignT Commercial Door Interlock Switches join an
established product line that features two residential versions: a metal
housing version (RDI Series) and a plastic-molded housing version (RDI2
Series). The CDI Series has a greater pull force than the RDI Series or RDI2
Series (675 pounds vs. 150 pounds) and a longer mechanical life (one million
cycles vs. 50,000 cycles)-important features for commercial applications.
