Sealed selector switches simplify assembly via integrated M12 connectors

RAFI has expanded its RAMO S selector switch series to incorporate integrated M12 plug and play connectors that ease assembly. The M12 terminals assure that the required wiring effort is decreased to a minimum and that no extra enclosures with special sealing are needed.

Providing a fully enclosed housing with an IP65 degree of protection, the series does not need further housing. Hence, these switches – like all control and indicator elements in the RAMO 22 and 30 series – are excellent for cost-effective construction and retrofitting decentralised applications. Depending on the series, the switches are created for mounting holes with diameters of 22.3mm or 30.3mm.

Alternatively, the RAMO EDGE fixing angle provides the choice of placing the switches offset on any surfaces or on 40mm profile rails. The RAMO S series incorporates selector switches in different types with rotating angles of 40, 60 or 90-degrees. Depending on the model, the levers may be switched to up to three positions and the actuation functions momentary contact, latching or momentary contact and latching. The contact functions offered are 1NC+1NO, 1NO and 2NO. The rugged selector switches are also offered in illuminated versions with translucent handle marking.

The simple connection with standard M12 plug terminals makes wiring unnecessary, so its switches, key switches and lamps may even be installed by untrained personnel. The components in the RAMO 22 series provide black front rings in synthetic material, while the RAMO 30 versions offer flat stainless steel bezels.
