New standard for interlocking devices BS EN ISO 14119

Posted 31 Oct 2013

This new International Standard supersedes EN 1088. In contrast to the previous standard, ISO 14119 considers additional technologies such as RFID or electromagnetic guard locking, classifies interlocking switches and regulates more clearly the specifications for installing guards. These regulations are particularly significant with regard to protection against guard manipulation. The old standard was purely European, whereas the new standard is published by ISO.
