Elesa’s CFS hinge satisfies the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which will come into effect on 29 December 2009.

Section 1.4.2.2 covers moveable guards, which must be associated with an interlocking device that prevents the start of hazardous machinery functions until they are closed by giving a command whenever they are no longer closed.

The CFS hinge’s specification covers use in hazardous areas to Cat 1 and switches off equipment when a door or panel is opened.

In industrial environments, the hinge helps to ensure operator safety.

Alternatively, the CFS may be used to remotely indicate status, such as for access monitoring.

Construction is an integral glass-reinforced technopolymer unit ensuring a tamper-proof installation.

Two variants are available: the CFS-SH with countersunk screw fixings for optimum strength and security and the CVS-CH with slotted fixing for adjustment.

Each one is offered with either top-mount cable connection or a rear-mounting connector and appropriate leads to suit either the machine control or the status indication role.

The CFS switching hinge, normally paired with the standard CFM hinge, provides 180-degree opening with switching operation over 4 degrees to 15 degrees.

It meets EN60204-1, EN6097-5-1, EN60529 and GS-ET15, with the switch and contacts sealed to IP65 for indoor use.
