Position Switches & Sensors


Product Code: 101122854

The Schmersal AZ17 safety switch is engineered for machine safety applications, particularly suitable for hinged guards. This robust thermoplastic device features a separate actuator and two safety contacts with an opener (NC) switching element. It offers reliable termination through its IDC connector and can handle a thermal test current of 10 A. With utilisation categories of AC-15: 230 VAC at 4 A and DC-13: 24 VDC at 4 A, it ensures compatibility with various control voltages. The AZ17 series is designed without auxiliary contacts, focusing on straightforward functionality and secure operations in industrial environments.
