Sealed V4 Switches Feature Reduced Differential Movement and Precise Changeover
Fri, 08/07/2009 - 11:16am
The improved V4 microswitches offer a reduced differential movement of 0.05mm and below to better accommodate industrial applications such as electromagnetic brakes or pressure switches that require very small differential movements to operate correctly. Although compact V4 switches deliver size and price advantages over alternative solutions, they have traditionally been mostly used in automotive and appliance applications, in which differential movement is not a consideration. With their low differential movement of a maximum of 0.05mm, however, the MP500 series of V4 microswitches can now provide an ideal solution for a wide range of industrial OEM applications. The redesigned MP500 series of V4 microswitches delivers a precise changeover movement throughout their long mechanical life span of 10 million cycles. The switches are approved under EN61058 for 250VAC - 2A under 50,000 cycles and are also supplied with gold contacts for 24VDC - 0.1A applications. The IP67 sealed switches are available with PCB or solder pins, as well as cable or wire versions, which can be custom made upon request.
