The use of switches in wet rooms, spa and pool facilities, requires not only the right choice of switch technology, but can often require unusually long cables. SCHURTER meets this requirement with the launch of the installation-ready piezoelectric switch PSE, an elegant high-end solution.

The pre-assembled polyurethane cable of the new PSE with cable is potted, which offers maximum flexibility and the highest IP protection during installation. Waterproof from switch surface to connection, the cable is 15 metres in length. The installation of the switch is simple by means of a nut.

The housings of the factory assembled piezoelectric PSE family are made of stainless steel 1.4462. This steel is characterised by its particularly high resistance to corrosion, which is essential in areas with high humidity. The PSE switches offer maximum reliability and a long service life (20 million actuations). Hermetically sealed housings make the PSE with cable predestined for use in particularly harsh and inhospitable applications.

Notably, the PSE with cable is resistant to chlorinated liquids and common pool chemicals.

The actuator has a ring illumination with a total of 7 possible display colours. The supply voltage has a range of between 5 - 28 VDC and maintains a constant brightness.

Originally developed for spa and pool builders, it is ideal for use in any sanitary application. Other applications include medical technology, food processing or similar industrial applications where the highest degree of robustness and reliability are required.

  • Waterproof ->from the front surface to the connection point
  • Potted PUR cable for a tight installation
  • High reliability, long lifetime with more than 20 mill. actuations
  • With RGB ring illumination and variable voltage 5 - 28 VDC

Condition monitoring of critical components on machines delivers enormous benefits to productivity in a plant.  Rather than have a motor, pump, or compressor unexpectedly fail and the machine be inoperable until a replacement part is installed, condition monitoring of those critical pieces on the machine can provide warning signs that something is about to go terribly wrong. Vibration measurements on rotating equipment can detect when there is imbalance or degrade on rolling bearing elements.

Unplanned downtime threatens productivity and profit across industrial and commercial sectors. In a recent survey of these customers, 20% rate reaching zero unplanned downtime as their top priority, and 70% consider it a “very high priority.”

 Often, downtime comes as a surprise because facility operators lack visibility into their operations. Hardware failures and malfunctions account for 45% of downtime incidents – but 71% of field service decision makers aren’t fully aware of their assets’ maintenance schedule.

Those of you in the food industry are already familiar with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)—a law that focuses on preventing contamination, rather than reacting to the problem after the fact. A big part of FSMA compliance has to do with the design of plant equipment, which includes the electrical components that provide power to manufacturing lines.

Fortunately, MENNEKES offers a variety of electrical products that make FSMA compliance easier than ever. Let’s explore this topic in our new blog post.
