The CAT4 magnetic safety switches feature a coded magnet system with a fixed cable and an industry standard M12 connector, enabling AS-Interface users to safeguard small doors and coverings with a compact solution that quickly and easily mounts in any position. With a 36 x 13 x 26.2 mm footprint, model VAA-2E-IER2-S-1M-V1 is the most compact of the two available switches. With a moderately longer 87.5 x 13 x 25 mm housing, model VAA-2E1A-IER1-S-1M-V1 features LED status indicators that provide users with easy-to-read visual diagnostics. Fully encapsulated electronics provide IP67/IP69K protection for long life (108 switching cycles) and reliable operation in ambient temperatures ranging from -20 to 60 degrees C, according to the manufacturer. Power and communication is supplied directly through the AS-Interface network.
