A comprehensive collection of international certifications and approvals allow for unlimited application possibilities and seamless integration into any control panel for safe and assured global use. Modular construction provides easy configuration and an unwavering service life of up to 250,000 switching cycles in each direction. Furthermore, an anti-rotation device and innovative snap-on design guarantee intuitive and fast assembly without the need for any special tools.
