New safety switch with rotating actuator head

The new electromechanical safety switches with separate actuator from Schmersal: the AZ215/AZ216 and AZ315/AZ316 switches are used for monitoring the guard position of hinged or sliding guards. Their outstanding feature is the rotating actuator head made of die-cast zinc, which can be easily rotated in 90° steps prior to installation. This allows the head to be approached from the side in four different directions, as well as from above. With this versatile approach position and the ability to combine with different actuators, the AZ Series offers maximum installation flexibility and a range of universal applications for the user. The designer can use the AZ switch for both right and left hand designs on both hinged and sliding guard doors.

The plastic or metal switch housing is identical in design and size to the position switches of the PS 215/216 and PS 315/316 series, giving the AZ switches an equally compact design and easy integration into the surrounding construction. The small AZ215 and AZ216 switches comply with the EN 50047 standard, while the larger AZ315 and AZ316 switches comply with the EN 50041 standard.

In addition to the standard version with M20 cable entry and connection terminals, versions with 4 or 8-pin M12 connector are also available, depending on the number of contacts. With the in-built 8-pin connector, AZ switches can be connected to the SFB Safety Fieldbox. Device versions with three contacts in a wide range of combinations can also assume a signalling role in addition to their safety function. The connection terminals on the switch elements, which are rotated by 45°, enable quick and easy wiring.
