MICRO SWITCH V15W2 Series basic switches are precision snap-action contact mechanisms enclosed in plastic cases. Switch actuation triggers the mechanical closure of the switch’s contacts. The switches are approved for use in Zone 2 hazardous locations. While a small amount of arcing occurs between the switch contacts during contact closure, the switch is environmentally sealed so that flammable gases cannot enter into the switching cavity. This minimizes the chances of ignition of flammable gases in a hazardous atmosphere. The IEC Ex approvals are: Ex nC IIA T5 Gc for an ambient temperature range of -25 °C to +85 °C per IEC 60079-0 6th Edition (2011) and IEC 60079-15 4th Edition (2010) via certificate IEC Ex DEK 17.0053U.
