Position Switches Series 8060

Position switches are used to monitor the position of moving parts of machines and systems.

They can be used in safety circuits as the device satisfies the standard EN 60947-5-1 (VDE 0660 Part 200) and the normally closed contacts are positive opening contacts.

The switching element and the actuating element of category 1 safety switches form a constructional and functional unit.

As a result of the galvanic isolation of the moving contacts, the position switch is suitable for switching various potentials.

  • Enclosures of type of protection "increased safety"
  • Dimensions and characteristic values according to EN 50047
  • Replaceable contact in flameproof enclosure
  • Positive opening contacts
  • Category 1 safety position switch with a variable system of actuators
  • All inserts may be displaced by 4 x 90°
  • Contacts with:
    • Snap-action contact
    • Slow-action contact
    • Make before break slow-action contact
  • Possible as version with unconnected cable end
