When the application is more complex than a “stand alone” switch can provide, consider the MICRO SWITCH AC Series Door Switch. The AC Series switch assembly monitors the position of a service door or panel whether closed” or “open”.
The AC Series switches are a compact switch assembly designed for equipment applications ranging from vending machine service doors or panels, monitoring doors for truck trailers, and military-related doors and/or panels. When the equipment (door or panel, etc.) which is electrically interlocked through the AC Series switch is opened, the action of the AC Series switch disconnects the electrical power.
The AC Series switch can provide an electrical signal to an annunciator circuit such as a light or horn indicating the door or panel is open. Another feature that is common to most AC Series switch assemblies is a “pull-to-override” position which allows the service door to be open and yet apply electrical power through the switch assembly. The “pull-to-override” switch position could be useful for trouble shooting equipment as required.
AC Series switch assemblies are available with up to four switch elements which can provide discrete outputs as required for control and/or indicator circuits. Select catalog listings are available with UL and CSA agency certification. Where the application is military related, catalog listings are available with a military specification part number.
