Much more than just cabling, the PFA, Inc. SWITCHMAX™ is the ultimate connectivity solution for injection molds. Designed to be a plug-and-play accessory for connecting machine inputs, this groundbreaking product now offers cross-connected sensor verification, PNP and Relay sensor connections, relay power adaptors for AC and zero volt inputs systems, and much more. In this article, we will look at why you should integrate the SWITCHMAX™ into your mold making process.
Many modern systems are now developed that provide multiple inputs and outputs without consideration for integrated outputs directly to a PLC or machine control. When you connect the SWITCHMAX™ system to your side-action mold cylinder sensors, you gain a complete integration of all sensors, including LED indication, to your existing core set and pull machine inputs. The SWITCHMAX™ connectivity system offers even more functionality when paired with our existing products like KOR-LOK™ Side-Action Systems.
SWITCHMAX™ can easily be integrated into your existing machinery through typical machine inputs as an all-in-one solution for the setup of mechanical and 3-wire DC slide switches and sensors. All you have to do is connect the wiring as described into the User Guide and you will be ready to begin. We worked hard during the design process to make installation easily adaptable to a variety of mold sizes and sensors which keeping the process as effortless and efficient as possible.
At PFA, Inc. we are committed to providing affordable solutions for the common problems that mold makers face. The SWITCHMAX™ fulfills a much-needed role during the production process and we are confident it will provide the needed sensor wiring standard to enhance mold to press integration and troubleshooting.
