Munich, 04/01/2011: The S840 snap-action switch by Schaltbau GmbH is used in a gearbox limit switch by Meyer Industrie Electronic. This gearbox limit switch monitors the position of the blades in the pitch-adjustment section. At this position, the S840 snap-action switch checks that the end position of the blades is not overrun. This prevents the cables from twisting and breaking off.

The S840 snap-action switch is fitted with positive opening and self-cleaning contacts (silver or gold). It can be used at temperatures between -40 and +85°C. The mechanical lifetime is around 10 million switching operations. You will find more information at www.schaltbau-gmbh.de.
