The recently launched CES-C14 switches feature an encapsulated ingress-proof design, comprising a two-part epoxy resin outer shell, extensively tested for material resistance including alkaline and acidic cleaning agents & disinfectants in accordance with Ecolab specifications.

The Euchner CES-C14 is supplied with a 20M PUR connection cable and in addition to a very tough outer shell it offers a high degree of ingress protection including IP67/IP69K.

The units are designed with a high level of integrity and can be used in systems up to and including CAT4/PLe (EN ISO 13849-1). With two semiconductor safety-outputs these switches can easily be integrated into the majority of safety-related control systems including where the replacement of existing, less reliable switches is required.

To ensure dependable operation the well-designed switches have a high tolerance to misalignment and can be provided in both Unicode and Multicode versions: The Unicode units create a ‘matched pair’ of switch and actuator preventing personnel manipulating the safety system through the use of a spare actuator – helping the facility meet the requirements of the safety standard EN-ISO 14119.

To ensure maximum up-time of the plant and equipment the CES-C14 switches have two wide-angle LED’s giving straightforward information about the status of the switch.
