Unformatted text preview: the key technical data relating to micro switches. The figures
listed in this table are typical examples and merely provide an overview. Parameter Value Switching capacity (resistive load) 24 V DC, 6 A
250 V AC, 6 A Switching point accuracy 0.01 – 0.1 mm (Precision switch up to 0.001 mm) Switching frequency Approx. 60 – 400 switching operations/min. Service life 10 Million switching cycles Protection class (IEC 529, DIN40050) IP00 – IP67 Table 2.1.1: Technical data of a micro switch © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 27 2. Mechanical position switches 2.1.3 Notes on installation
Because limit switches are components of mechanical precision, the following must
be observed with regard to installation:
• Accuracy with regard to assembly, (precise gap between switch actuating
component and object)
• Rigidity of switch/mounting support connection
• Careful observation of the activating devices (approach from side or front)
Care must be taken when making the electrical connectio...
