Hinge switches for hazardous areas

01 March 2008

The new CFS hinge from Elesa has a built-in security switch to suit Category 1 Hazardous areas and serves to switch off equipment when a door or panel is opened in industrial environments to ensure operator safety. Alternatively it may be used to remotely indicate status, perhaps for access monitoring. Construction of the CFS is an integral glass reinforced technopolymer unit ensuring a tamper-proof installation and easy assembly.

The CFS switching hinge, paired with the standard CFM hinge, provides 180° opening with switching operation over the range 4° to 15°. It meets EN60204-1, EN6097-5-1, EN60529 and GS-ET15 with the switch and contacts sealed to IP65 – for indoor use.

Two variants are available – the CFS-SH with countersunk screw fixings for optimum strength and security – and the CVS-CH with slotted fixing for easy adjustment.
