Position switch with roller pluger, EX-version

The position switch with roller plunger EEx13 R is designed as safety switch with positive contact and intended for the use in explosion-endangerd areas. It complies with the demands of the norm series EN81-20 / EN81-50. The actuation is done by a roller plunger that may therefore be actuated by a ramped device. The switch is used for the measuring of given positions at moving components.


  • special version for the use in explosion-endangered areas
  • enclosure made of shock-resistant plastics, self-extinguishing
  • actuation roll made of metal
  • positively driven normally closed contact with large contact opening (> 2 x 2 mm) and additional signal contact
  • precise switching point with high repetitive accuracy
