1. Ambient conditions 1) The use of these switches under the following conditions should be avoided. If the following conditions should become necessary, we recommend consulting us first. Use where there will be direct con tact with organic solvents, strong acids or alkalis, or direct exposure to their vapors. Use where inflammable or corrosive gases exist. Because these switches are not of water resistant or immersion-proof construction, their use in water or oil should be avoided. Also, locations where water or oil can normally impringe upon the switch or where there is an excessive accumulation of dust should be avoided. 2) To improve reliability during actual use, it is recommended that the operation be checked under installation conditions. 3) If OT is too big, the life of limit switch will be shortened switching friction. Use it with enough margin of OT. 70% of OT standard value will be good for use. 4) Do not use the switch in a silicon atmosphere. Case should be taken where organic silicon rubber, adhesive, sealing material, oil, grease or lead wire generates silicon. 5) Avoid use in excessively dusty environments where actuator operation would be hindered. 6) When used outdoors (in places where there is exposure to direct sunlight or rain such as in multistory car parks) or in environments where ozone is generated, the influence of these environments may cause deterioration of the rubber material. Please consult us if you intend to use a switch in environments such as these. 2. Mounting and wiring 1) Although SL limit switches have large over-travel (O.T.), excessive O.T. will occur wear and change in its characteristics. Specifically, where there is a need for long life, it is recommended that the proper O.T. as given below should be used. Specifically, where there is a need for long life, it is recommended that the proper O.T. as given below should be used. Within 1 to 3mm.039 to.118inch 2) When the operating object is in the free condition, force should not be applied directly to the actuator. 3) Use their own accessories when mounting and wiring SL limit switches so as to maintain their own characteristics. When the SL rubber cover type is used, there should absolutely be no tension applied to the cord. If there is the fear that tension may be applied, the L socket or socket with cord attached should be used. The maximum permissible tension with the above socket use is 98N{10kgF}. 4) The tightening torque when installing this limit switch should be 1.18 to 1.47 Nm (12 to 15 kgcm).

If operated up to 55 position, revolves automatically to retain 90 position. Two dog operation enables recovery operation through single dog, or for anything that has caused the roller position to slip. Excluding the thread direction, direction can be adjusted up to 360. Operating power is the lowest of the limit switches, and is effective in detecting when direction and conditions are uneven. In order to absorb the movements after operation in the actuator part, work slippage tolerances are also large. Using a low speed, low torque cam, the lever can assume various shapes suited to the operation. The lever is very sturdy.
Spring wire and flexible rod


Hinge lever type

Roller lever type

Suited to high speed cams through the attachment of a hinge roller lever.
One way roller lever type
Operation is possible with both hinge lever type and one way operation, but the roller will break if operated in the opposite direction, rendering the unit inoperable. Can be used to prevent opposite direction movement.
The roller position can be changed.


Standard glossary CONSTRUCTION

Fixed rating values

The values that guarantee the standards for the limit switch characteristics and functions. For example, the rated current and rated voltage, which are preset conditions (load type, current, voltage, frequency, etc.) Operating object The mechanism and mountings that operate the limit switch actuator. Used for mechanical operators such as cams and dogs. Detective object The unit other than mechanical mountings that operate the limit switch.

Glossary relating to the EN60947-5-1


EN standard same as IEC947-5-1 Utilization categories The following examples express the classification of switches by category of use.
Category Contents Controls electromagnetic loads in excess of 72VA (Volt Amperes.) Controls resistance loads and semiconductor loads.
Rated impulse withstand voltage

Current type AC

Rated operational voltage (Ue)
The maximum rated voltage for switch operation. This must never exceed the maximum ratings insulation voltage (Ui). Rated operational current (Ie) The maximum rated current for switch operation. Rated insulation voltage (Ui) The maximum rated current value which guards the switchs insulation functions, forming the parameters for the resistance values and the mounting distance.

(Uimp) The peak impulse current value which enables the switch to resist without insulation breakdown. Rated enclosed thermal current (Ithe) The current value that enables current to flow without exceeding the specified maximum temperature in the recharging contact switch. If the pins are made of brass, the maximum temperature limit is 65C 149F. Conditional short circuit current The current the switch can resist until the short circuit protection device is activated. Short circuit protection device A device that protects the switch from short circuits through a circuit break (breakers, fuses, etc.) Switching overvoltage The surge momentarily generated when a circuit is closed. Must be lower than the Uimp value.

Pollution degree

Expresses in levels the environment in which the switch is used. The four levels are shown below. Limit switches come under contamination level 3.
Contents No contamination or, even if contamination is present, only non-conducting contamination is generated. Normally, only non-conducting contamination is generated, but there remains the possibility of temporary conducting contamination when the circuit is formed. Conducting contamination is generated, or else dry non-conducting contamination is generated by circuits which can be anticipated. Permanent conducting contamination is generated by dust, rain, snow, and other conductors.

Pollution degree 1


Protective construction

Expresses the degree of protective construction that guards the level of functionability of the switch against ingress of solid objects, water, and oil. The standards are IEC529 (IEC: International Electrotechnical Commission) standards. IEC standards determine the level of protection against both water and solid objects, but not against oil.

Pay attention to the following points when designing the dog for limit switch operation. 1. Make the dog faceplate as smooth as possible. 2. Adjust both the dog angle and the set arm angle as below, depending on the operating speed. 3. The depth (h) of the dog effects the lifespan of the limit switch. Therefore, set the depth to a maximum of 80% of the Total Travel (T.T.) 4. The relationship between the speed of the dog (V = m/s) and the tip angle () is as follows: 1) V&0.2m/s

The maximum tolerable speed can be extended by further reducing the dog rise angle from 45 when 0.5m/s ! V&2m/s. It is necessary to set the arm so that the dogs cutting surfaces are always parallel ( o = 90 ) 4) Overriding the dog (V&0.2m/s)

Vmax (m/s) 0.2 0.1 0.05
When V&0.2m/s, set the arm to perpendicular and set the arm rise angle to between 45 and 90. If the dog rise angle is reduced, the maximum tolerable speed is increased. As a rule, = 45 is optimum. 2) V&0.5m/s

V = 45 h F

Even if overriding the dog, set the forwards and rearwards motion exactly the same, and avoid any settings that make the actuator accelerate rapidly from the dog. 5. Operation speed 1) When the operation (acting and reverting) speed is exceedingly slow, switching of the contacts will become unstable and this could cause problems such as failure to make contact and welding. As a guide, the speed should be at least 1mm/s. 2) When the operation (acting and reverting) speed is exceedingly fast, be careful because the violent motion could cause breakage and with increased frequency, contact switching will not be able to keep up. As a guide, the switching frequency should be within 20 times per minute.
If overriding the dog, set the arm perpendicularly, so that =45. If the dog angle is reduced, the tolerable speed is increased.

o = 45

Because the arm jiggle is as a minimum at a comparative speed such as V&0.5m/s, setting both the dog angle so that it travels perpendicularly and the arm angle to 45 is optimum.


1. The ON/OFF circuit for the guidance load may suffer contact damage due to surges or inrushes when the power is turned either ON or OFF. Consequently, insertion of a protective circuit as per the following diagram is recommended, in order to protect the contacts.
Circuit Limit switch contact Cautions for use (1) r must be a minimum of 10; (2) When using AC power: Q Impossible when R impedance is large. W Possible when c, r impedance is sufficiently small compared with R impedance. Can be used with both AC and DC as appropriate. r~R C: 0.1 F

4. Using electronic switch circuits (low power, low current) 1) Bouncing and chattering are generated due to collision between the contacts when the limit switch is switching between them, and this sometimes causes such problems as white noises and error pulses in both the electronic circuit and the reverberation equipment. 2) If the generation of bouncing and chattering becomes a problem, it is necessary to consider installing a CR circuit or other absorption circuit given the circuit design. 3) This is particularly necessary when high contact reliability is needed, and is unsuitable for silver contact switches. Switches with gold contacts possess excellent performance.


1) Do not attempt to physically alter any part of the switch itself, such as the actuator, or switch attachment vent, as this may cause alterations to both characteristics and performance, and damage the insulation. 2) Do not pour any lubricants such as oil or grease onto the moving parts of the actuator, as there is a possibility that this will cause a malfunction due to seepage into the inside, and impair the motion. Silicon-based grease in particular affects the contact points badly. 3) If the switches are not to be used for an extended period of time, their contact reliability may be reduced due to oxidation of the contact points. Because accidents may result from the impaired conductivity, always implement a check beforehand. 4) Prolonged continuous use of the switch hastens deterioration of the parts (especially the seal rubber) and may cause a malfunction in the release. For this reason, always implement a check beforehand. 5) Usage in the vicinity of either the switch operating position (O.P.) or the release position (R.P.) results in unstable contacts. If using the NC contact point, set the actuator to return to the free position (F.P.) Also, is using the NO contact point, hold the ratings values down to 70 to 100% for the overtravel (O.T.) 6) If the actuator is forced beyond its total travel (T.T.), the internal mechanism may be damaged. Always use within the T.T. 7) Do not apply unreasonable force to the actuator, as this may result in damage and impaired movement. 8) The switch, if dropped, may break due to excessive vibration and impact. Therefore, please use extra caution when transporting and installing. 9) Condensation inside the switch may occur if there are rapid ambient temperature changes when the switch is in a high temperature and humidity. Since this occurs easily during marine transport, be extra cautious of what the environment will be when shipping. Condensation is the phenomenon in which water vapor condenses into switch-adhering water droplets when the temperature rapidly drops in a high-temperature, high-humidity atmosphere or when the switch is quickly moved from a low temperature location to a place of high temperature and high humidity. It is the cause of insulation deterioration and of rust. 10) Be careful of freezing in temperatures below 0C. Freezing is the phenomenon in which moisture adhering to the switch from condensation or when in unusually high-humidity environments freezes onto the switch when the temperature drops below the freezing point. Please extra caution because freezing can lock moving parts, cause operational delays, or interfere with conductivity when there is ice between the contacts. 11) In low-temperature, low-humidity conditions, plastic becomes brittle and the rubber and grease harden, which may lead to malfunction. 12) Long term storage (including during transport) in high temperature or high humidity environments or where the atmosphere contains organic or sulfide gas, will cause sulfide or oxide membrane to form on the contact surfaces. This in turn will cause unstable or failed contacting that may lead to functional malfunction. Please verify the atmosphere when storing and transporting. 13) Packaging should be designed to reduce as much as possible the potential influence of humidity, organic gas, and sulfide gas, etc. 14) Please avoid sudden changes in temperature. This is a cause of switch deformation and encourages the seal structure to breathe, which may lead to seal failure and operational malfunction. 15) If installing a thermoplastic resin case, the use of a spring washer tightened directly against the case will cause the case to collapse and become damaged. Therefore, please add a flat washer before tightening. Also, be careful not to install if the case is being twisted. 16) For the purpose of improving quality, materials and internal structure may be changed without notice. 17) When used outdoors (in places where there is exposure to direct sunlight or rain such as in multistory car parks) or in ambient temperature environments where ozone is generated, the influence of these environments may cause deterioration of the rubber material. Please consult us if you intend to use a switch in such environments.

Avoid using in silicon environments such as organic silicon-based rubber, solvents, sealants, oil, grease, or wiring.


Poor design Improved design Explanation
Problem Dog adjustment is difficult. Solution Separate each one until the dog can be adjusted.

Dog axle

Problem The dog axis is too long, and slips out during operation. For this reason, the limit switch operating position slips. Solution Firmly fix the dog plate to the base.


Printer Detector
Conveyer Conveyer Rotation axle
Problem The detector sinks, applying force to the limit switch. The limit switch O.T. cannot be set. Solution Relieve the pressure using an additional actuator, and the O.T. can also be set.

Rotation axle

Problem The area around the actuator coil is easily damaged. Friction generated during operation. Solution Relieve the friction by installing an additional actuator. Change the type of limit switch.
Problem Workers keep bumping the actuator. Solution Fit a protective cover to the side of the limit switch.

Protective cover

Problem Because the cord vent for the limit switch faces upwards, water droplets and so forth can easily penetrate the interior. The cord is constantly moving and thus easily damaged. Solution Fix the limit switch position on the stationary board. Fit a protective cover, so that water and oil cannot come into direct contact with the limit switch.
Problem The cord is not fixed, and gets pulled during work. Dog adjustment is ineffective. Solution Change the limit switch position, and fix the cord. Attach an adjustment mechanism to the dog.
High temperature High temperature
Problem The limit switch is near a high-temperature area. Dog adjustment is ineffective, and the dog keeps bumping the lever. Solution Move the limit switch further away. Make dog adjustment possible, and change the shape of the unit.
Poor design Improved design Explanation Problem The detector is scratched. Limit attachment adjustments are difficult The actuator is damaged. Specimen transfer is impeded. Solution Fix the limit position to behind the dumper to solve the above problems.


Conveyer Conveyer Detector Detector
Problem The transfer path of the detector is not fixed, and it keeps bumping the actuator. The operating position is unstable. The actuator is damaged. Solution Stabilize the operating position by fitting an additional actuator. Make limit switch adjustment possible. Problem Stroke adjustment ineffective. Release the limit switch position, and ensure that the dog does not bump the lever. Solution Make dog adjustment possible. Change the limit switch position, and sure that the dog does not bump the lever. Problem The cam shape is unsuitable (especially during release and strike release.) Direction of limit switch attachment is unsuitable. Solution Render the cam shape smooth. Change the limit switch position.

UL (Underwiters Laboratories Inc.) This is a non-prot testing organization formed in 1894 by a coalition of U.S. re insurance rms, which tests and approves industrial products (nished products). When electrical products are marketed in the U.S., UL approval is mandated in many states, by state law and city ordinances. In order to obtain UL approval, the principal parts contained in industrial products must also be ULapproved parts. UL approval is divided into two general types. One is called listing (Fig. 1), and applies to industrial products (nished products). Under this type of approval, products must be approved unconditionally. The other type is called recognition (Fig. 2), and is a conditional approval which applies to parts and materials. CSA (Canadian Standards Association) This was established in 1919 as a non-prot, nongovernmental organization aimed at promoting standards. It sets standards for industrial products, parts, and materials, and has the authority to judge electrical products to determine whether they conform to those standards. The CSA is the ultimate authority in the eyes of both the government and the people in terms of credibility and respect. Almost all states and provinces in Canada require CSA approval by law, in order to sell electrical products. As a result, electrical products exported from Japan to Canada are not approved under Canadian laws unless they have received CSA approval and display the CSA mark. Approval is called certication, and products and parts which have been approved are called certied equipment, and display the mark shown in Fig. 3. The mark shown in Fig. 4 is called the Component Acceptance mark, and indicates conditional approval which is applicable to parts. The C-UL mark shown in Fig. 5 (nished products) and Fig. 6 (parts) indicates that the product has been tested and approved in UL laboratories, based on UL and CSA standards, through mutual approval activities.

Listening Caution

EST. 1924
Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high volume. Hearing experts advise against continuous extended play. If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use. Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas. You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. Even if your headphones or earphones are the open-air type designed to let you hear outside sounds, dont turn up the volume so high that you cant hear whats around you. Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing comfort level adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds normal can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts. To establish a safe level: Start your volume control at a low setting. Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion. Once you have established a comfortable sound level: Leave it there.
