KIEPE belt misalignment switches of type HES are designed for heavy duty application and used at fixed belt conveyors according to DIN EN 620 requirements in order to keep the risk of unintentional operation as low as possible. The lateral movement of the conveyor belt is monitored and by switching off the conveyor in the case of unacceptable belt drift, the belt monitoring prevents damage and destruction of the belt and the machine.
The Kiepe type HES misalignment switch complies with the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU. It features a robust aluminum housing and is equipped with 2 force-actuated changeover contacts with snap-action function with two adjustable switching points.
Note: The misalignment switch may only be used in control circuits.
