Schurter recently debuted a piezoelectric switch, PSE, which is installation-ready with its pre-assembled 15-meter-long cable. The potted polyurethane cable offers installation flexibility with the highest IP67 protection according to IEC 60529 and IP69K according to DIN 40050-9, according to the company.
Designed to be waterproof from its surface to its electrical connections the switch’s housing is made of 1.4462 stainless steel, which is characterized by its high resistance to corrosion, essential when used in areas with high humidity. Each offers a lifetime of 20 million actuations. The solid-state technology, combined with the hermetically sealed housing, makes the PSE electric switch ideal for use in particularly harsh and inhospitable applications, including healthcare, the company said.
The PSE electric switch with cable offers ring illumination with a total of 7 possible display colors. The supply voltage has a range of between 5 – 28 VDC and maintains a constant brightness. Switching voltage is max. 42 / 60 VAC/DC Switching current is max. 100 mA. Actuation force is ≤ 3 N. Actuation travel is 0.002 mm.
