Hinge includes IP67 safety switch

An IP67 180 degree hinge has been designed with a built-in multiple safety switch, so that in the event of accidental opening of a control cabinet door, machine panel or safety door, it automatically shuts off the power so protecting the operators of machinery and production equipment.

The CFSW from Elesa is paired with its equivalent mechanical hinge, the CFMW so creating a tough, safe installation.

The CFSW is double insulated and approved AC15 (IEC 60947-5-1) and DC13 (IEC 60947-5-2) for usage up to 400V-4A (AC15) – it is available with different combinations of contacts with positive opening (2NO+2NC, 1NO+3NC etc). These robust units are tested to over 1 million operating cycles, are totally tamper-proof, and may be quickly and easily installed.

Standard configurations are 8 pole connector or 8 core cable in 2m or 5m lengths. 180 degree opening is normal but other operating angles may be specified. The Elesa website provides extensive user guidance for installation, configuration and operation. Similar products in the Elesa range include metal hinges, standard plastic hinges, stainless steel hinges, tubular handles and wing knobs.
