New switchbox for manual valves now available from Rotork

Now available from Rotork Instruments is a hazardous area limit switchbox for manual valves 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 polyester powder coated copper-free aluminium or 316L stainless steel housing, the Soldo 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 approval.

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

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 products designed to link the control room with process valves. All Soldo products are fully supported by Rotork's worldwide sales and service network.
