Wireless and battery-less limit switch

07 January 2018

The new OsiSense XCKW range from Telemecanique Sensors is said to offer simplified connectivity where cabling is difficult, expensive, or unwanted. Because there are no contacts, maintenance costs can also be reduced.

The range of wireless, battery-less limit switches are offered in out-of-the-box compatible packs comprising an OsiSense XCKW limit switch and a receiver. The switches have a standard range of up to 100m, which can be extended through the use of an active antenna.

The switches come in a plug-and-play kit, so only electro-mechanical skills are needed to install it. It is also said to make it easy to replace earlier-generation limit switchs as the OsiSense XCKW is 100% compatible with XCKS & XCKM switches.

The limit switches are self-powered, so there is no need for battery replacement or battery recycling costs. Schneider Electric’s optimised design and production process has also reduced the amount of raw material used per device, making it more environmentally friendly.
