THE Bernstein SHS3 safety hinge switch, exclusive to Balluff-Leuze , has many new features that users have been demanding.

For instance, the switching point of the SHS3 is freely settable in an angle range of 270°. But the most important innovation is the opportunity to re-adjust the switching point even after it is set.

Another novelty is the modular structure: using the same hinge, it is now possible to build a system with a right or left end stop. In addition, both front installation and interior installation between the profiles can be realised.

But no matter which type of installation is needed, the switching point can be freely set over the entire angle range.

Equipped with two forced opening safety contacts and a signal contact, the SHS3 switch allows for a layout up to control category 4 according to EN 945-1, in a redundant system. Bernstein hinge switch has been developed as a full load hinge and has a protection of IP67.

Bernstein AG is a manufacturer and systems partner for industrial safety solutions in the switch, sensor and housing technology sectors.
