Explosion-proof microswitches (EEx microswitch /Atex)
Burgess microswitches convince with innovation and quality
As another reliable manufacturer we present Burgess. Europe’s leading manufacturer of microswitches convinces with innovative switch solutions. A wide range of products – from limit switches and limit switches to position switches and microswitches – reflects the many years of expertise of this manufacturer. Furthermore, we offer explosion-proof microswitches from Burgess. For these offered products you will find clear installation drawings on our homepage. We also recommend the positive opening switch from Burgess. Thanks to it, even if the contact is welded or the spring breaks, it is ensured that the closed circuit can be opened without any problems. The positive break switches continue to impress with a robust and stable housing. Burgess even offers switches with a double break. Here the distribution of the voltage takes place on two fixed contacts. For this reason, high performances and voltages are achieved. The switches with a double break have a long electrical life as well as a high contact reliability. Our company offers you these switches in four different designs. You can find products as normally open, changeover and normally closed. Especially customers who are looking for switches with high performance should choose switches with a double break.
Snap-action switches are recommended for various industrial operations because they achieve a high electrical switching capacity even with a large continuous load. Thanks to the snap-action mechanism in the snap-action switches, flexible switching is possible, which is independent of the actuation time. As a result, the arc is optimally extinguished and switching points are reproducible. In addition to control currents, snap-action switches are also recommended for loads. The snap-action switches from Schaltbau GmbH also have a double-break feature and can therefore score with the same advantageous criteria as the switches from Burgess. Depending on the series, the bounce times of the snap-action switches vary from 1.7 to 3.5 ms. Since safety is one of the most important criteria for switches, this is additionally increased in the snap-action switches by V-shaped contacts and friction movements between the contacts. Another advantage of snap-action switches is that they are self-cleaning. As a result, the contact resistance remains constant throughout. Another feature that Schaltbau snap-action switches have in common with Burgess switches is the positive opening feature, which ensures that the normally closed contacts open safely. Series mounting is no problem due to the compact design. To fully meet our customers’ demands for quality and efficiency, we offer snap-action switches from this manufacturer with an increased degree of protection up to IP 67. You can check the contacts as often as you like, because the snap-action switches have a transparent housing.
In our assortment you will find a wide selection of snap-action switches. First, however, it should be clarified what exactly constitutes a snap-action switch. The snap-action switch is also called a snap-action switch, among other things. Since it is suitable for use in two-point control circuits, it is used with microswitches. It has a positive mechanism that allows fast switching, which is virtually independent of the duration of actuation. This has the advantage that the arc is extinguished optimally and switching points can be reproduced exactly. Furthermore, the snap-action switch is characterized by a pronounced hysteresis. As a result, the effect lasts even when the causative force ends. Snap-action switches reliably switch both control currents and loads. The switching speed is largely independent of the actuating speed. In addition, snap-action switches impress with the self-cleaning property of the contacts. This ensures a constant contact resistance. Most of the snap-action switches we offer have been manufactured with a double break. Here the voltage is distributed on two fixed contacts instead of one. For this reason, higher voltages as well as performances can be achieved and the life span of the snap-action switches is also increased. Another characteristic of the snap-action switches is the positive opening. It ensures contact separation and thus safe opening of the closed circuit. This mechanism is guaranteed even in the event of a short circuit.
