These safety hinge switches are available with an adjustable switching angle to allow the rotation angle of 270 degree, or with a factory preset switching angle for inside mounting or surface mounting. The adjustable model comes with a tool that adjusts the switching angle and provides the cap for the adjustment port to prevent operators from readjusting the switching point. The Tesk can be installed on a standard aluminum extruded profile frame sizes or other guard styles. It is available with an extended hinge half with a set of mounting holes suitable to secure the hinge to plexiglas or plastic doors. Models are provided with a quick connector or prewired cable. Constructed from die cast zinc and with an IP65 rating to resist dust and water, these hinge switches are suitable for interlocking hinged safety guards in industrial environments.
