Switches for temperature

Limit value switch for temperature (thermocouple)


Limit value switch RTK5

  • Limit value switch for temperature, thermocouple
  • Simple application; for rough 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 RTK5 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 wire breaks. Its compact and robust design, as well as the relevant shipbuilding approvals, make this product ideal for marine applications.
