PVL brings Limit Switch design into 21st century. PVL has brought limit switch design into the 21st Century with the launch of a compact, rugged and easy to mount range of limit switches with anodised aluminium bodies. Combining low operating force with a range of connection strategies (including push-on terminals or standard DIN plug) and IP65 construction, the Models FC1P and FC2P limit switches provide robust and reliable ON/OFF functionality in a huge spread of motion control, machinery safety, automotive and other industrial applications. The new limit switches share the same bodies as PVL's range of high performance pressure and temperature switches, delivering a small, neat and fully industrialised solution whilst at the same time enabling the company to pass on the cost benefits afforded by volume manufacture. Key features of the limit switches include their connection options and ease of mounting. Connection choices include push-on spade terminals (with an optional cover to maintain IP65 sealing) or standard DIN plug. The DIN plug version allows functions such as ON/OFF delay to be implemented as required, and the DIN plug is rotatable so that mounting the switch in a particular orientation is less of an issue. Installation of the limit switch into an application is achieved via its standard M12 threaded barrell. The limit switches require a force of 200 grams to operate, and guarantee switching with a travel of just 0.8mm. Giving designers added flexibility when designing the limit switches into applications, the products offer a maximum travel of 3mm. The limit switches offer changeover contacts as standard, rated at 6A, 250V AC. Lifetime is specified at 1,000,000 electrical operations and a minimum of 100,000 mechanical operations at maximum rated voltage and current. ____________________________________________________ For more information, contact...
