Safety door switches designed for slim spaces subject to water washdown cleaning

Omron’s D4GS-N switches are rated IP67 for water washdown, feature reversible design allowing either front, rear mounting.


Omron ScientificOmron Safety Door Switches Technologies Inc. has introduced D4GS-N Slim Safety Door Switches. Just 17 mm wide and featuring IP67 protection, the tongue actuated D4GS-N is designed to fit in skinny spaces subject to water washdown cleaning. A reversible design enables either front or rear mounting, and an operation key with unique rubber mounting holes absorbs vibration and shock.

D4GS-N safety interlock switches are rated to provide a minimum of 1,000,000 mechanical operations and 100,000 electrical operations. They are vibration resistant from 10 to 55 Hz (0.35 mm single amplitude), shock resistant to 1000 m/s2 min., and can operate in ambient temperatures from -30 to 70°C (with no icing).
