Title: MECHANICAL DOOR INTERLOCK DEVICE
Abstract:
A mechanical switch-door interlock assembly (50) includes a mounting assembly (52) and an actuator assembly (70). The actuator assembly (70) includes a body (72), a door sensor (74), an operating mechanism handle actuator (76), and a number of sliding coupling components (54). The actuator assembly body (72) is slidably coupled to the mounting assembly (52). The actuator assembly body (72) moves between a first position, wherein the operating mechanism handle (30) actuator does not operatively engage the operating mechanism handle (30), and a second position, wherein the operating mechanism handle actuator (76) operatively engages the operating mechanism handle (30) and moves the operating mechanism handle (30) to the second position. When a door (26) is in a first position, the door (26) operatively engages the door sensor (74) and moves the actuator assembly body (72) to the first position. When the door (26) is in the second position, the door (26) does not operatively engage the door sensor (74) allowing the actuator assembly body (72) to move into the second position.
