Rotary knob with integrated potentiometer

As of now, Schlegel offers switches with integrated potentiometers for its Shorton connect series. Potentiometers are available with the following resistance values: 1 kΩ, 5 kΩ, 10 kΩ or 50 kΩ. The connection is provided via a 4-pole M12 connector, A coded. The rotary knobs are designed for temperature ranges from -20°C to 70°C; the degree of protection is IP66/IP69K in the front and IP65 on the rear side, when connected. The mechanical life is up to 100.000 rotation cycles with a rotation angle of 260°. On the screw connection a nominal voltage of max. 160 volts with a nominal capacity of max. 0.1 watts can be applied. The mounting depth is 37.5…

For a machine’s life-long application

Harvesting machines, drills, special transporters or snow removal machines: Those machines face harsh and inhospitable conditions. However, not all of the used technical parts are proofed against such demanding environments. For the emergency-stop safety area, there is now a solution: The companies Data Panel and Schlegel joined forces and developed an especially robust emergency-stop that withstands even the hardest of operating conditions. Mobile machines operating in outdoor areas and dealing with weather or excessive cleaning have to be prepared for such applications - which is not always the case, confirms Data Panel CEO Jörg Krautter, "The feedback from the market was more than clear." This feedback kick-started the whole emergency-stop project: "The requirement…

Emergency-stop with 4 NC contacts

New e-stops for KOMBITAST series - 2 versions with M12 connection Schlegel expands its KOMBITAST series by four new emergency-stops. This expansion includes e-stops with 4 NC contacts, one with Faston terminals and one with PCB connection, as well as two further ones with 5-pole M12 connectors. For most applications, 2 NC contacts and 1 NO are enough. For special applications requiring more than 2 NC contacts, the new e-stops KRVK4O with Faston terminals or KRVK4OP with PCB connection, each with 4 NC contacts, are the best choice. Customers with M12 technology will also find a suitable solution: KRVKOO_C111 with 2 NC contacts or KRVKOOI_C112 with 2 NC and 1 NO contacts. The M12…

Pilot light with 7 colours

It is made in the RONTRON-R-JUWEL design and includes a RGB-SMD LED. Besides the option to choose between 7 colours, the illumination uniformity and the depth of colour have become even more homogeneous and intense. The standard colours are white, red, green, blue, yellow, magenta and cyan, but it is possible to access the whole RGB colour range, using a PWM signal (pulse width modulation). The pilot light is easily connected via the SMD flat clamp, just inserting the cable. The clamp ensures the connection and keeps the cable in place. A safety diode protects the LED against damage in case of improper connection of the cable. The new RGB pilot light is…

Robust and safe: Schlegel emergency-stop switches

In dangerous situations, emergency-stop switches can protect from serious injuries or even safe life. Schlegel emergency-stops convince customers in the whole world: Mechanical robustness, outstanding functionality and safety as well as the attractive design are good arguments for using our emergency-stop switches. Our switches are TÜV certified and available in different shapes, dimensions and suitable for our standard and AS-Interface contact blocks. Emergency-stops with illuminated status indication active/inactive In order to avoid the mixing up of active and inactive emergency-stops it was necessary until recently to lock away or cover the inactive emergency-stop to make it unrecognisable as soon as the relating operating panel or plant part was no longer connected to the…

Design-awarded control devices for sub-zero temperatures

The new Kombitast-R-Juwel series enriches the Schlegel product portfolio in the range of 30 mm mounting diameter. All actuators of the KRJ series have been tested for temperatures down to -40°C. Hence, they are mainly used in trains and commercial vehicles such as e.g. buses, trucks, fire engines and agricultural vehicles which are operated in very cold regions. Other“icy“ application areas are cold stores, ski-lift installations, snow cannons or ships. Needless to say that the actuators that have been recognized with the if design award 2013 are also used under “normal“ ambient conditions, particularly in cases where a larger touch surface is required. With that slim titanium-lacquered front ring (2.7mm) with a diameter…
