Z Limit switches
Limit switch with basic plastic housing
The Z series of basic switches in plastic housing provide the same electrical and
mechanical switching capability and lifetime as standard limit switches. But with
the basic plastic housing the basic switches are an ideal solution with best value for money for uncritical environments or when separately encased in subassemblies.
• Cost efficient basic plastic housing for subassemblies
• Same electrical and mechanical switching ratings as standard limit switches
