A lot of limit switch applications are under harsh conditions or outdo or use, which may damage the switch and require a maintenance exchange. As the series MP700 limit switches are IP67 sealed, an exchange also implies changing the wiring. This could mean on outdoor equipment changing several meters of cable. In order to facilitate the maintenance, there is the possibility to connect through a M12x1 Connector and still keep IP67 protection on the switch. The connector can be mounted on the side, but as an option also underside is possible. The MP700 series of limit switches are available with metal housing and a 5pin connector or with plastic housing and a 4pin connector. Fixing holes can be either 20mm or 25mm apart. The switches are supplied with a large variety of actuator options and are conform to IEC 947-5-1 and EN 60 947-5-1.
