I prefer Gail's definition for interlock. Don's definition implies that
something dangerous to a person or the printer can happen and I don't think
that's always the case.

I would define an interlock as:
A switch or sensor used to stop operation of the device due to the
opening of a door, cover or other component of the device in order
to prevent injury to a human or improper operation of the device.
