Mainly used to detect the presence of components, the Swich Contact Probe, after a certain travel, turn off the contact inside them.
Usually they are threaded, to guarantee the fixing to the receptacle dedicated to them. At the same time, the head shape, total length and diameters of our Probe Switches are variable to facilitate their use in different applications.
The pitch of installation of our Probe Switches depends on your specific needs.
Using Switch Probe does not entail very high currents, which is why our Switch Probe can work with currents up to 3 A. The current in the small internal contact must not exceed 1 A.
For special requirements we are able to increase the working current, we are open to any request.
The typical contact resistance of our Standard Switch Probes is 50 mΏ.
The materials used for the construction of our Switch probes are different for each component:
We have two types of Switch Probe to which correspond respective receptacles produced in gold plated brass to improve conductivity and decrease resistance:
The most commonly used head types for Switch Probe are:
A special feature is the 3P isolated head that can be useful in particular applications where the head must be isolated from the component it meets.
Other types of heads are available on request.
