Safety hinge offers adjustable angle

Safety hinge offers adjustable angle Schmersal has introduced a new hinge switch for guard doors that combines the hinge and switch in a single unit. The TVS-410 safety hinge provides an innovative solution for monitoring the position of safety guards as it is installed on the hinge side so that neither the switchgear nor the actuator protrudes into the doorway of open safety guards. Another design innovation allows engineers to set an optimum opening angle up to 180° for the access door by adjusting the safety hinge switch using the special key provided. The switch is tamper-proof so that when the angle is set it cannot be changed without the key. Slotted holes make fixing easy and the 180° opening angle enables the TVS-410 to be fitted flat against doorposts and safety guards. This means that safety guard systems with very small doorpost gap widths can be accommodated, and the TVS-410 can even be fitted between the doorpost and the safety guard. Cable entry points at the top and bottom makes wiring of the switches easy.
