Many limit switches must function in harsh conditions or outdoors – environments which may damage switches and lead to frequent changeouts. Even limit switches that are IP67 sealed often require wiring replacements. This could mean changing several meters of cable on outdoor equipment.
In order to facilitate faster maintenance, Microprecision introduces models MP730 through MP760 sealed limit switches with the ability to connect through an M12x1 connector, which maintains IP67 protection on the switch. The connector can be mounted on the side, but a bottom-mount option is also available.
The MP700 series limit switches are available with a metal housing and a 5-pin connector or with a plastic housing and a 4-pin connector. Mounting holes can be placed either 20mm or 25mm apart for installation flexibility. The switches are additionally supplied with a large variety of actuator options and conform to IEC 947-5-1 and EN 60 947-5-1.
