Zero Speed Switches for Slow-Speed Applications

Article-Zero Speed Switches for Slow-Speed Applications

Dazic zero speed switches provide an instant alert or relay throw if the rotary motion of equipment stops or deviates from standard operating parameters.

Interlocked as part of a conveyor system or other shaft-driven process components, the 8100 Series detects changes in motion from 0.5 to 25 RPM, making it ideal for slow-speed applications. When driven from a critical shaft, the switch can be electronically fitted to actuate a signal or alarm device, break a circuit to a motor, make a circuit to start auxiliary equipment, make or break a circuit to other electrical devices, or signal a control station or PLC.

Manufactured from aluminum or cast iron with a NEMA 4/4x rating, the switches are available with SPDT, DPDT, or SPDT(s) wiring contacts. Mounting options include base mount, flange, or flange with pilot.
