Basic Switches

General-purpose Basic Switch

A large switching capacity of 15 A with high repeat accuracy.

A wide range of variations in contact form for your selection: basic, split-contact, maintained-contact, and adjustable contact gap types.

A series of standard models for micro loads is available.

A series of molded terminal-type models incorporating safety terminal protective cover is available.

General-purpose Basic Switch

Same shape as OMRON Z Basic Switches except in pin plunger position, yet endures inrush currents as large as 75 A.

General-purpose Basic Switch

Incorporates a small permanent magnet in the contact mechanism to deflect the arc to effectively extinguish it.

Same shape and mounting procedures as the Z Basic Switches.

Special-purpose Basic Switch

Ideal for switching the circuits operating on two different voltages, and for controlling two independent circuits.

Interchangeable with OMRON Z Basic Switches, as both switches are identical in mounting hole dimensions,mounting pitch and pin plunger position.

High-temperature Basic Switch

Incorporates a ceramic insulator, cobalt-alloy spring, and special-alloy contact, thus ensuring high contact reliability at high ambient temperature.

Smoothly operates at an ambient temperature of 400°C.

Door Switches
1ZAP2 / 1VAP2

Installation in electrical facilities,equipment doors, and other openings helps ensure safety by reliably preventing accidents.

A Basic Switch if built in to provide a large switching capacity and long service life.

Z / A / X / DZ Common Accessories

Terminal Covers
The Terminal Covers can be attached to Z, A, X, and DZ Switches.
The Terminal Cover is secured with mounting screws and protects the casing and terminal wires from dust, vibration, or fingers, thus preventing terminal short-circuiting, ground faults, wire disconnection or improper connection, and electric shock accidents.
Terminal Covers made of phenol resin have five or six thin wall sections. These sections can be
torn open for providing holes for lead cables at desired points.
A terminal cover can’t be used in the case of using an actuator sold separately.
Use a Separator when it is difficult to provide a sufficient insulation distance or when using the Switch near metal parts or copper wires.

Common to Z, X, and DZ Models
A Switch can be actuated by a cam or an appropriate object, in which case, use one of the following Actuators according to the application.
