Schmersal Tesk safety hinge switches

Monday, 26 May, 2014 | Supplied by: Control Logic Pty Ltd

Suitable for the position monitoring of protection doors on design-oriented machines, the Tesk series is the fourth generation of Schmersal safety hinge switches. With this series, the switching angle (which means the hinge angle at which the safety-related signal is initiated) is freely adjustable over the whole of the working range. The user can select different contact configurations with up to four contacts and the option of cable connection or plug connection.

The device’s construction allows it to be mounted on the hinge side of the rotating guard. This replaces a conventional hinge and at the same time takes over monitoring the position of the guard.

Safety hinge switches provide high protection against tampering as the safety switch is not visible to the operator (as it is an integral part of the guard). Additionally, the machine builders benefit because their machines and enclosures can be constructed with the commercially available aluminium profile systems.

Double swing doors can also be monitored using this hinge switch.
