EUCHNER developed the first multiple limit switch in 1952. Today it is still part of the wide range of automation products from EUCHNER. Along with numerous position switch designs, the Automation product line includes Identification Systems and high quality plug connectors.
Suitable for use in harsh production conditions, these high precision, reliable switches with their compact design are ideal for positioning and control applications in mechanical and systems engineering. A very wide range of applications is covered by the flexible configuration of these devices with non-contact and mechanical switches as well as other customer-specific features. Their high quality guarantees an exceptional mechanical life.
These limit switches were developed in close co-operation with machine tool manufacturers. The high quality materials, the combination of mature technology, high precision and practical design guarantee straightforward function in all industrial applications. Different designs cover a wide range of specific applications.
The alternative to inductive proximity switches are mechanically actuated limit switches. These switches are completely maintenance-free and are also used in the most extreme conditions. Their small size makes it possible to install them directly at the monitoring point.
These mechanical command switches are designed according to the European standard EN 50041. The robust design, the utilization of corrosion-resistant materials, the precise production methods and the high degree of protection guarantee straightforward and reliable function in the toughest conditions.
The combination of trip rails and trip dogs with all EUCHNER command switches safeguards the advantages of these highly precise positioning devices and ensures trouble-free operation.
Round plug connectors have a very robust, mat chromium-plated brass housing. When assembled correctly in relation to EMC, they provide optimal protection against electromagnetic interference. The connector system can also be used for very low currents and voltages due to the integration of gold-plated contacts.
Inductive Identification Systems are used for the non-contact identification of products such as tools, product carriers or containers in the entire manufacturing and logistics sector. The data carriers for the Identification Systems CIS are mostly programmed with a unique sequential number. The product is identified at a read station using this number and the related production data are then assigned to the product.
