FNR switches with Hall Effect sensor for a long life time

To control vehicles and machines you can purchase high-grade FNR switches from the manufacturer OTTO Controls at ALDERS. These are characterised by high-quality processing and a long life time. In order to operate this switch also in poor light conditions, it is also possible to opt for an illuminated version. The FNR switches function using the so-called Hall effect and this enables precise control for up to three million cycles.

At ALDERS we supply direction switches with these functions:

  • background lighting 2 Volt to 24 Volt
  • up to three million cycles possible

As usual, you benefit from our broad range of services and consulting solutions, as well as from our favourable prices and short delivery times.

FNR switches for operating machines in different areas of application

FNR switches are used in applications of agricultural machine technology, conveyor technology in mechanical engineering, in equipment for the building trade and for passenger transportation. We rely on FNR switches by OTTO Controls since precision and safety have the highest priority in these areas. This manufacturer’s FNR switches are compact, very robust and reliable. The switches have three positions (Forward, Neutral, Reverse) and ensure great operating comfort. A slight movement is sufficient to change the direction of a machine. There is no mechanical wear due to the contactless signal transfer of the Hall effect sensor. That guarantees a long service life of the switches. The direction switches by OTTO Controls have the protection category IP68S. This indicates how high the resistance of the switch housing is against penetration by foreign objects and fluids. The first figure provides information on the resistance against dirt particles. With the number 6 the direction switches meet the highest safety category, which means that they are protected against dust in damaging quantities. The second figure refers to the waterproofness of the housing and this is, with the figure 8, likewise in the highest safety range. This means that the switches even withstand being often submerged in water without any trouble.
