New Soldo switchbox has magnetic appeal

Launched at the 2014 Valve World Expo, the Soldo Easy Switch hazardous area limit switchbox for manual valves is designed with minimal moving parts and magnetic switching technology for long-term reliability in the most demanding applications and hostile environments.

Available with a rugged polyster powder coated copper-free aluminium or 316L stainless steel housing, the Easy Switch design is adaptable to suit all manual valve types. Environmentally sealed to IP67 or IP68, the switchbox is ATEX and IECEx certified with optional SIL 2/3 approval.

The easy to mount magnetic target, featuring a durable glass reinforced magnetic holder, operates two magnetic switches to provide precise remote position feedback to the control room. A choice of hermetically sealed proximity switch options offer dependable performance for a wide range of power ratings at ambient temperatures ranging between -60ºC and +105ºC.

The ‘O’ ring sealed, threaded lid is designed for easy removal by hand and provides straightforward access to the wiring terminal block, whilst the option of a second conduit entry adds versatility to wiring configurations.

The Easy Switch is the latest addition to the established range of Soldo Controls products designed to link process valves to the control room. Soldo Controls has almost 20 years of technical expertise enabling the company to provide complete solutions for specialised applications, from product concept design and development through to the manufacture of finished products.
