D4B Limit switches Limit switch with metal housing The D4B series of limit switches in a rugged metal housing is suitable for both safety and non-safety applications due to its direct opening mechanism and TÜV approval. Furthermore with the increased temperature range and enhanced mechanical switching life- time,theD4B is first choice for all applications from standard to demanding environ- ments and for highest flexibility in mountingand connectivity preferences. • Direct openingmechanismand approval by notifiedbody • Rugged metal housing and extended mechanical switching lifetime (snap action models) • Terminal block for direct wiring Ordering information Actuator type Connection method Order code*1 1NC/1NO (snap-action) 1NC/1NO (slow-action) 2NC (slow-action) Roller lever*2 Terminal block with M20 conduit*3 D4B-4111ND4B-4511ND4B-4A11N Adjustable roller lever D4B-4116ND4B-4516ND4B-4A16N Adjustable rod leverD4B-4117ND4B-4517ND4B-4A17N Plain D4B-4170ND4B-4570ND4B-4A70N Roller D4B-4171ND4B-4571ND4B-4A71N Coil spring D4B-4181N*4 –– Plastic rod D4B-4187N*4 –– *1The NC contacts provide the approved direct opening mechanism. *2For models with stainless steel rollers and temperature resistance of -40°C refer to WL-_-TC. *3Models with G1/2 or 1/2"14NPT conduit are available.

When the safety cam or plunger is moved in the direction of the arrow, the Limit Switch releases. 1. When metal deposition occurs. 2. When contacts are being pulled apart. Movable contact 3. When contacts are completely pulled apart.
