Oscar Rotary Gear Limit Switch; Ratio1-5:1 4switch NO/NC, Ratio2-5:1 2switch NO/NC, IP67,standard
The Oscar Rotary Gear Limit switch offers the flexibility of two gear ratios, which can be different or identical. This is a popular choice for adding both a traditional limit switch and an encoder or potentiometer, or just adding more cams and switches. The Oscar can be configured with ratios from 1:1 up to 1550:1 to handle just about any requirement. A drive gear is used to transfer rotation from the main shaft to the second shaft. Typically, when both shafts are set to the same ratio, the second output is used for additional switches or a potentiometer. When the second ratio is set to 1:1 it is most common to add an encoder to the limit switch. This gives you positional data from an encoder and fixed limit points from the switches, all in a single device. Standard switches are NO/NC with positive opening NC contacts. Switches are mechanically rated for up to 10 million operations. IP67/IP69K rated and suitable for temperatures from -40C to +80C; the Oscar is suitable for just about any environment.
The Oscar is CE marked, UL approved, and for even higher safety requirements, the Oscar can be BGV C1 certified, and equipped with the LIMA safety system. The LIMA system complies with ISO 13849 for control system safety requirements. Contact us for more details on customizing Oscar Rotary Gear Limit Switches for your requirements.
