Safety Limit Switches

XCS Safety Limit Switches

XCS Safety Limit Switch

Preventa XCS safety limit switches are used in machine safety systems for a wide variety of safety related functions, including end of travel notification, overtravel indication, safety related positioning of machinery/tooling or component parts, as well as interlocking gates and guards. They are often used in conjunction with safety interlock switches for mechanical and electrical redundancy on doors and guards.

Features and Benefits

  • Meet US and European safety standards requiring that switches used in safety related applications have positive opening contacts

  • Tamper resistant covers over mounting screw and head adjustment to reduce potential for tampering

  • Red color allows easy visibility and identification of safety related limit switches

  • Two body styles available:

    • Compact, pre-wired with cable

    • Compact, with conduit entry

XCSP/XCSD Safety Limit Switches

The XCSP (plastic body) and XCSD (metal body) safety limit switches are identical in size and features. The only difference is the enclosure and conduit entry. XCSP and XCSD safety limit switches are for use in safety related applications including end of travel notification, overtravel indication, safety related positioning of machinery/tooling or component parts, as well as interlocking gates and guards.

Features and Benefits

  • Positive opening contacts standard in all devices

  • Snap acting contacts

  • Slow make/slow break contacts

  • Several head types available

  • Metal and Plastic body styles available

  • Several conduit types available

  • Tamper resistant cover

XCSM Safety Limit Switches

The XCSM safety limit switches come pre-wired in multiple lengths of electrical cable for simplified installation. The XCSM safety limit switches are for use in safety related applications including end of travel notification, overtravel indication, safety related positioning of machinery/tooling or component parts, as well as interlocking gates and guards.

Features and Benefits

  • Positive opening contacts standard in all devices

  • Snap acting contacts

  • Slow make/slow break contacts

  • Several head types available

  • Metal body

  • Pre-wired in various cable lengths

  • Tamper resistant cover

XY2 Cable Pull Switches for Emergency Stop Operation

XY2 Cable Pulls

XY2 cable pull switches provide emergency stop signaling at any point along a cable up to 656 feet in length. This is preferable to installing many individual emergency stop push button stations along a conveyor or around the machine, providing a more cost effective solution. Typical applications include conveyor systems, packaging, textiles, transfer machines, presses, woodworking equipment and paint lines.

Operation is based on the taut cable principle. The cable must be tight and have appropriate tension applied to set or reset the switch. Once cable tension has been set, the device will open the N.C. control contacts if either the cable is pulled or if it becomes slack due to stretching or breakage of the cable.

Normal stop versions are used where a momentary, non-emergency signal is required at any point along a cable.

Features and Benefits

  • Cable lengths: XY2CED: 656 ft.; XY2CE 230 ft.; XY2CH and XY2CJ 98 ft.

  • Emergency stop versions (available in XY2CED, XY2CE, XY2CH, and XY2CJ)

    • The N.C. contact opens the control circuit and mechanically latches, and will remain latched in the open position until an operator manually resets it

    • Emergency stop versions have positive/direct opening contacts as standard

    • Device will not reset if out of adjustment

  • Normal stop versions (available in XY2CE and XY2CH)

    • Normal stop versions are used where a momentary, non-emergency signal is required

    • Normal stop versions do not latch contacts open or include positive opening contacts

    • Normal stop versions are provided with snap action contacts for momentary stop

  • Adjustable tripping force (XY2CE and XY2CED)

  • Available with 2 N.O. and 2 N.C. contacts (XY2CE and XY2CED) or

  • Available with 2 N.C. and 1 N.O. contacts (XY2CH and XY2CJ)

  • Two viewing windows to aid in adjusting the switch (XY2CH)

  • Manual tripping force adjustment (XY2CE and XY2CED)

  • Adjustment indicator (XY2CE, XY2CH, and XY2CED)

  • Traction force indicator (XY2CE, XY2CH, and XY2CED)

  • Left, right, and straight cable mount, depending on unit

  • UL NSID certified for emergency stop

  • Protection level IP65 and IP66 (XY2CED)

  • Compliant up to PLe/Cat4–Sil3 safety levels (XY2CED)

XY2CED Features

  • Operating temperature range: -13 °F to 158 °F (-25°C to +70°C)

  • Suitable for protected outdoor use

  • Silicon bellows (extreme temperatures) or nitril as standard bellows

  • Different types of reset button (booted, flush, key)

  • With or without pilot light

  • Cable entries: Compatible ISO M20 and Pg 13.5 cable glands or threaded ½ in. NPT

  • Contact blocks : 2 blocks [ N.C. + N.O. ]

  • Protection level: IP65 and IP66

  • Certifications

    • CE

    • UL-NISD

    • CSA

    • CCC

  • Compliant up to PLe/Cat 4 – SIL3 safety levels (with appropriate safety interface)
