Piezo Electric Switch Pre-Assembled with Cable for Extremely Harsh Environments

Santa Rosa, California, October 1, 2020 – SCHURTER’s new Piezo electric switch, PSE, is installation-ready with its pre-assembled 15-meter-long cable. The potted polyurethane cable offers installation flexibility with the highest IP67 protection according to IEC 60529 and IP69K according to DIN 40050-9.

SCHURTER’s new PSE electric switch is waterproof from the switch surface to its electrical connections. The housing is made of 1.4462 stainless steel, which is characterized by its high resistance to corrosion, essential when used in areas with high humidity. The PSE electric switches offer a long lifetime of 20 million actuations, customary to the technology known for its robust performance. The solid-state technology, combined with the hermetically sealed housing, makes the PSE electric switch ideal for use in particularly harsh and inhospitable applications.

The use of switches in wet rooms, spa and pool facilities, and various sanitary applications requires not only the right choice of switch technology but can often require long cables in between actuator and appliance. SCHURTER’s elegant high-end solution, PSE with cable, with its resistance to chlorinated liquids and common pool chemicals, meets these requirements. Other applications include medical technology, food processing or similar industrial applications where the highest degree of robustness and reliability are required 

The PSE electric switch with cable offers ring illumination with a total of 7 possible display colors. The supply voltage has a range of between 5 - 28 VDC and maintains a constant brightness. Switching voltage is max. 42 / 60 VAC/DC Switching current is max. 100 mA. Actuation force is ≤ 3 N. Actuation travel is 0.002 mm. Pricing starts at $140.00 in 1 pc quantities.
