Caution! Due to the slow actuation speed of the switching contacts caused by the high gear reductions, the change-over behaviour of the contacts is affected negatively. From gear size 6 it is therefore recommended to use only the normally - closed contacts of the switches. Before using analog feedback systems (eg. potentiometer) please consult our technical department. Switching Contacts
The contacts can either be connected through screw terminals for a cable cross section of 0.75mm2 to 1.5mm2 or through flat plugs 6.3 x 0.8mm or through a printed card with cage tension spring terminals for a cross section of 0.14 to 2.5mm2. For contacts with flat - plug connection, insulated flat - plug receptables must be used at voltages above 25V AC and 60V DC.

RLS-51 Features and Options Features The RLS-51 geared cam limit switches are universal mechanical switching devices that have been designed for use in conjunction with cam discs based on a specific angle of rotation for indication of a large number of shaft revolutions. These cam discs serve to operate mechanical contacts. Design features include:Low friction planetary gearing with irreversible, self-locking worm adjustment of the cam discs. Fixed cam adjustment in the housing. The adjusting worms of the cam discs are arranged so that they can be accessed from the same direction as the contact connections for optimal accessibility in confined conditions. Adjustment is possible during operation. The simplicity and accuracy of the cam adjustment is unsurpassed. Block adjustment of all switching contacts jointly is made possible by a single adjusting worm (black) without the switching points of the individual switching contacts being altered with respect to each other. Large cam disc diameter for good adjustability and high switchng point repeat accuracy. Reinforced polycarbonate housing as standard with IP66 protection and a wide operating temperature range. Modular design allows adaptation to suit individual requirements via intermediate pieces. Options Position indicating plate for block adjustment. Potentiometer feedback drives (2 available) to suit single and multi-turn potentiometers Pulse transmitter with 50 pulses per revolution. Anti-condensation heater to prevent condensation and excessively low temperatures in the switches. Motor driven contact block adjuster. Mounting for encoders (incremental or absolute). Extended drive shaft for feedback devices. Aluminium housing for harsh environments and the fitment of large and heavy encoders, IP65 enclosure. Cam discs with a 40 cam angle can be provided at no extra cost. Other angles can be manufactured at extra cost on request. Stage technology tested unit can be provided to VBG 70 with test certificates.
