Thanks to new stainless steel mounting brackets, the dual sensor from Turck can now be used on hand-operated valves for easily transmitting the valve’s position. The bracket is easily mounted on the valve with two screws and attached to the manual lever by a threaded bolt. The distances between the screw holes meet conventional standards so that the bracket may be used on most valves. The new mounting bracket significantly enhances the dual sensor’s functionality, because it allows using the reliable detection principle even in non-automated plant areas. In this way, simple maintenance procedures like manual operation of drain valves can reliably be monitored and verified off-site.
