Features & Benefits
The compact low profile weatherproof VSM is UL certified NEMA Type 4, 4x and IP66/67. A die-cast aluminum cover and base coated with a polyester powder coat for exceptional corrosion, wear, impact and ultraviolet resistance.
B. High Visibility Position Indicator
Visual open and closed indication is provided with an impact resistant dome style indicator. Inverting the open and closed visual output is easily done by removing the dome and rotating it 90 degrees. There is no need to remove the cover and expose internal wiring of the VSM to change position indication.
C. Stub Shaft Secondary Seal
Ensures indicator area is separate from the VSM’s internals. Provides a secondary seal to prevent water ingress should the dome or dome seal become compromised due to adverse site conditions.
D. Captive Cover Bolts
The cover is attached to the base by captive stainless steel bolts placed outside the sealing area.
E. Protective Washers
Clear, nonmetallic, corrosion resistant washers are used to ensure coating integrity when cover bolts are tightened.
F. O-Ring Seal for Watertight Enclosure
The O-ring seal between the cover and base provides a weatherproof seal preventing internal corrosion.
G. Sensor Cams
Splined cam design allows for easy and accurate setting of switch activation without the use of tools.
