Safety Enclosures to Meet OSHA Requirements

Morse enclosures with safety interlock are available as one way to meet OSHA requirements.

(Drum Tumbler sold separately)

Enclosure outside post-to-post dimensions:
L88" x W52" x H63.25" (224 x 132 x 161 cm)

Note: OSHA Requirement for enclosure with safety interlockInstall all Morse Rotators in accordance with local requirements for enclosure and safety interlock, etc. One way to accomplish this is with a Morse enclosure with safety interlock, so the rotator automatically turns off when enclosure door is opened. Power connections and motor controls must also comply with applicable local codes.

For OSHA compliance in the USA, see OSHA subpart O.1910.212(a)(4) "Barrels, containers, and drums. Revolving drums, barrels, and containers shall be guarded by an enclosure which is interlocked with the drive mechanism, so that the barrel, drum, or container cannot revolve unless the guard enclosure is in place."

Please consult an electrician to complete the wiring in accordance to your local code. Explosion Proof motors are rated for Class I Group D, and Class II Groups F and G.
