13 February 2012
Wet, extreme temperatures and explosive zones are typical environments for the new ES/EM 98 standard position switch series from Steute. With mounting dimensions in accordance with DIN EN 50041, the switches are very versatile and their robust metal enclosures can withstand high levels of mechanical wear and tear.

Depending on usage and sealing type, variants in protection classes IP 66, IP 67 and IP 69K are available. A temperature range from -40°C to +100°C increases the application potential for this new switchgear series even further.
Users can choose from a large selection of actuators, and the available switching inserts include a new, pressure-resistant variant with three contacts designed as a snap action contact with positive break NC contact.
In the near future, variants will also be available which have been reinforced to meet the requirements for gas and dust explosion protection (zones 1, 2, 21 and 22 according to ATEX guidelines) and correspondingly certified. As a further innovative addition to the new range, Steute has developed RF 98 wireless versions which work according to the energy harvesting principle and require neither cables not batteries. With these features the new series is suited to all manner of tasks in the automation industry – including and especially in areas with extreme ambient conditions.
