Position switches are used to monitor the position of moving parts of machines and systems.

They can be used in safety circuits as the device satisfies the standard EN 60947-5-1 / DIN VDE 0660 Part 200 and the normally closed contacts are positive opening contacts.

The switching element and the actuating element of category 2 safety switches do not form a constructional unit but are functionally combined or separated.

As a result of the galvanic isolation of the moving contacts, the position switch is suitable for switching various potentials.
