Implementation of a protective door with tumbler with magnetic field lock via ASIsafe.

In the present example, an actuator mounted on the door moves into a form-fit mounted position switch with tumbler. During the potential danger (machine in
operation), the actuator is kept in position (and the door thus remains closed), by the power supply being connected to a magnet in the position switch. This type of
interlocking is referred to as a magnetic field lock.
