Safety switching hinge

04 December 2008

Elesa’s CFS hinge for hazardous areas has a built-in security switch to suit Category 1 areas and works so as to switch off equipment when a door or panel is opened. The CFS may be used to remotely indicate status. Construction is an integral glass reinforced technopolymer unit ensuring a tamper-proof installation and easy assembly.

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. Each one is offered with either top mount cable connection or rear mounting connector and appropriate leads to suit either the machine control or status indication role.

The CFS switching hinge, normally 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.
