Sensing and Internet of Things Non-Contact Safety Switches 004746 FF5 Series Issue 3 Datasheet FEATURES • Non-contact design requires no operating force to actuate switch • ABS plastic housing or 316 Series stainless steel housing for switch and actuator • Pre-wired cable length of 3 meters or 10 meters • Compact size of 52 mm x 28 mm x 14 mm [2.0 in x 1.1 in x 0.55 in] • IP67 environmentally sealed switch and actuator • CE and UL 508 certifications DIFFERENTIATION DESCRIPTION Honeywell FF5 Series are magnetically actuated, noncontact, pre-wired safety switches for use in machine guarding applications. These switches are designed to monitor the position of the guard and provide inputs to safety relays. The compact rectangular packaged switch and actuator are available with either an ABS plastic or 316 Series stainless steel housing. The small housing permits installation on machinery where there is limited space. A magnetic actuator is supplied with each switch. The noncontact switch design allows for flexible installations where misalignment of the machine guard may occur. Installed with two M4 or #8 screws, the FF5 Series is sealed to IP67 for wet and dusty environmental applications. With CE and UL certifications, the switches can be installed • Non-contact sensing requires no mechanical linkage to actuate switch • Two safety contacts when actuated for inputs to safety relay • Auxiliary contact closes when actuator moves out of the operating range POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS Equipment and machinery guards • Can forming and filling (aluminum, plastic, and steel) • Packaging equipment • Pick and place assembly equipment • Plastic molding equipment • Printing machinery • Semiconductor equipment • Textile machinery • Woodworking equipment on machinery for global applications. PORTFOLIO VALUE TO CUSTOMERS Honeywell FF5 Series safety switches are part of a comprehensive line of Honeywell electromechanical and non-contact safety switches.
