December 11, 2014 - Schmersal introduces PS116 Series of compact and robust limit switches for determining the position of movable machine components or machine guards that can be moved laterally or rotated. For ease of installation, these limit switches are prewired with either a M12 connector or a 2 meter cable lead, on the bottom or side of the housing. Since the housing is symmetrical, the switch can be mounted with the cable or connector to the left or right. The PS116 is available with 10 actuator elements - plungers, roller levers, and a rod lever - which are field adjustable, to be set in one of 8 positions (45° steps) to meet application requirements. The compact body design of the PS116 is suited for use in confined spaces to monitor the position or presence of moving parts, work pieces or conveyed materials. The housings are die-cast zinc and heavy duty thermoplastic and are dust tight and sealed to withstand strong water jets (IP66) and submersion in water (IP67), suitable for use in all industrial environments.
