Universal and safe

Always works: you can rely on the SMT-8M-A modular cylinder switch system in combination with Festo drives – both are perfectly matched as well as safe and easy to install. Cable chain and robot as standard ensure the best line quality, which guarantees significantly higher system availability and more flexibility.

Maximum efficiency
Time-consuming reordering of special variants and costly stock-keeping are eliminated. With IP65, IP68 and IP69k, they can also be used in harsher environments.

As the first electronic switches ever, they are also suitable for low temperatures down to -40 °C.

Maximum safety
The installation aid via a second LED visually indicates the safe installation position. This permanently prevents switching point losses, e.g. due to settling behavior of the drive, vibrations or shock.


Installation help

by second LED: indication of safe switching position via LED signal

One-hand assembly

Specially shaped strain relief at the cable outlet that holds the switch automatically when pressed in

Cable quality

Cable chain + robot as standard configuration: highest cable quality without necessary ordering via modular system and without additional costs

Temperature range

Lower temperature range
down to -40 °C: first electronic switch for low-temperature applications

Upper temperature range
Up to +85 °C

Operating voltage range

5 ... 30 V: for direct integration of the output signal in TTL circuits
