The Kinetrol VLS/ULS Limit Switch Box offers a wide range of signaling options in a fully enclosed corrosion resistant metal case. Available for direct mounting onto Kinetrol rotary actuators, or discrete mounting via an industry standard VDI/VDE interface onto any make of rotary actuator. Easy to wire and set up with industrial standard robustness.

Internally fitted options include AS Interface digital communication and a 4-20mA, 2-wire modulating angle retransmit circuit.

The range of switch and terminal arrangements includes 2 or 4 switches, extra connections allowing single point termination of wiring for limit switches and solenoid valves, ATEX approved Ex d (Category 2) explosion proof and Ex ia intrinsically safe packages (Category 1).

Integral sealed Clear Cone Monitor and red/green Led indicator options also give high visibility external visual indication of position.
