Elesa interlocked hinge protects packaging equipment

A common requirement for packaging equipment lines is the need for frequent access to adjust, correct, re-set or reprogramme. This a situation where the ingenious Elesa CFSW combined hinge and electrical cut-off switch provides a safe and simple solution.

Packaging lines are constantly developing to ensure cost-effective manufacture, often needing to incorporate new machines and especially to achieve low maintenance costs. The Elesa CFSW hinge-cut-off series helps simplify these machine guarding systems by eliminating the need for separate brackets and switches, and has delivered a significant cost saving in both components and fitting times.

Many packaging machines are often used in areas associated with regular wash-down cycles so the CFSW is highly suitable, offering IP67 dust and water protection.

The CFSW is double-insulated and approved by IMQ CA02.04800 in compliance with EN 60947-1/2007 + EN 60947-5-1:2004 + A1/2009, low-voltage control auxiliaries. It is available with different combinations of contacts with positive opening (2NO+2NC, 1NO+3NC etc.), and with different output positions of 8-pole male connectors or cables.

These robust units are tested to a B10d value of 2,000,000, are totally tamper-proof, and may be quickly and easily installed. The CFSW integrated cut-off hinge provides a simple, reliable and elegant solution to this personnel or equipment safety issue.
