Switches for VDC/IDC

Limit value switch for frequency (direct current)


Limit value switch RI5

  • Limit value switch for DC current
  • Simple application; for harsh environments
  • Limit value freely adjustable by drum scale
  • Open-circuit or closed-circuit devices available
  • Compact and robust construction
  • Operating status indication by integrated LED


Limit value switches of type RI5 monitor electrical measured variables. The integrated relay switches when the actual value present reaches the set target value. Furthermore, limit value switches of this type are equipped with sensor monitoring for short circuits and wire breaks. Its compact and robust design, as well as the relevant shipbuilding approvals, make this product ideal for marine applications.
