When inserting the actuator, ①unlatch the knob, ②slide the handle. Two-step action prevents the handle from inadvertent operation.
The key feature type has a keyhole on the handle of the actuator. When the key is turned and removed, the handle is locked to prevent unintended operation by other workers and to prevent the machine from operating unexpectedly, ensuring the safety of workers.

Even with actuators without key, by installing the padlock, unintended operation of other operators can be prevented after the door is opened.
