Honeywell announced it has expanded its Limitless Wireless Solutions portfolio with the introduction of its new Limitless Non-Contact Switch WLS Series. The new WLS Series switch uses non-contact technology, enabling the device to actuate based on the presence or absence of magnets installed on a customer's device.
The wireless, battery-operated switch allows customers to choose either top sensing or side sensing.
"With the addition of the WLS Series Non-Contact Switch, customers now have a choice of wireless mechanical actuation, non-contact actuation, and wireless operator push-buttons and interfaces to reduce installation cost, increase flexibility, reduce ongoing maintenance costs, and solve some of their toughest challenges," said Joseph Citrano, senior global product marketing manager, Honeywell Sensing and Control. "Wireless reduces capital and operating expenses, and adds reliability in many applications."
The switch can be actuated with a magnet, simplifying use in tight areas often found in machine tools, packaging machinery, lifts, ag/construction equipment, and industrial machines, or in applications where mechanical actuators are not feasible. Designed for rugged environments, the switch's zinc head and body are phosphate treated and epoxy finished to deliver sealing to IP67 and NEMA 1, 4, 12, 13, and all-stainless steel hardware.
