Control Logic introduces the fourth generation of safety hinge switches from Schmersal in the Australian market.

The new Schmersal TESK safety hinge switches feature a switching angle freely adjustable over the whole of the working range. The switching angle is the hinge angle at which the safety-related signal is initiated. The user can select different contact configurations with up to four contacts, and also has the option of cable connection or plug connection.

The Schmersal TESK safety hinge switch is designed to be mounted on the hinge side of the rotating guard, replacing the conventional hinge to take over position monitoring of the guard.

Key benefits of Schmersal TESK safety hinge switches include high protection against tampering as the safety switch, integrated into the guard, is not visible to the operator; allows machine builders to construct their machines and enclosures with the commercially available aluminium profile systems; and sleek appearance offering the perfect solution for position monitoring of protection doors on design-oriented machines. Even double swing doors can be monitored with this new hinge switch.
