New components for automation technology

The Schmersal Group is launching a new switch that can be used as a signal generator to start machines, open electrically operated safety doors and gates and as a switch for lighting in elevator shafts.

The main advantages of the new PS216 switch are its compact size and exceptional flexibility, activated thanks to the high degrees of protection according to EN 60529 and suitable for use in a wide range of temperatures.

Thanks to the degree of protection IP66, the PS216 switch is protected from dust and strong water jets and thanks to the degree of protection IP67 is also protected against temporary immersion in water. The switch can be used at ambient temperatures in the range of -30 ° C to + 80 ° C.

Another practical advantage is that the PS216 works according to the “start / stop principle”, as it remains turned on after initial activation and subsequent release. Only when the switch is actuated and released a second time does the latch release and the switch turn off.

The PS216 switch is available in two versions – Q200 has a holding force of 45 N and is suitable for wire lengths up to 50 m, while Q210 has a holding force of 70 N and can be used with wires stretching up to 100 m Pulling the tow wire activates the function of the switch in the pull switch.

Other distinctive features of the PS216 include a cable input via the M20 or M12 connector and six different NC / NO contact options.
