Installation and Operating Instructions

802R Sealed Contact Limit Switches


IMPORTANT: SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE USE.
Do not disconnect equipment while the

ATTENTION circuit is live unless the area is known to be

free of ignitable concentrations.


To avoid electrical shock and/or unintended
operation of equipment, disconnect all
power to the limit switch and the controlled
equipment before proceeding with any
repair or adjustment of the limit switch.
IMPORTANT

Handle with care. Contacts are


encapsulated in glass.

temperature code of T6 at 40C (104F).

Standard switch with 802T-W1 Lever

General data
Single contact sealed in glass envelope for high
reliability in contaminated atmospheres
Programmable controller compatible at 24 volts and above
0.5 inch NPT conduit connection
Lever type with spring return or maintained operation
push type, wobble stick and cat whisker with spring
return operation
Low operating torque (0.78 lbin) lever type with spring
return requires 802T-W5 rod lever
802T-W6 micrometer adjustable roller lever provides
precise positioning with lever type models
The 802R sealed limit switches are available in several
configurations. Adhere to approved industry standard practices
and electrical codes when installing and wiring limit switches.
Contact Rockwell Automation support if clarification is needed.

Lever positioning
The lever on rotary actuated
devices is adjustable to any
position through 360 around the
shaft. Loosen the nut, move lever
to desired position, and securely
retighten the nut (see figure).

Nut

Mounting
Position the conduit entering the switch so that any fluid
inside the conduit will not drain into the switch enclosure.
Apply sealing compound to conduit threads to prevent
entrance of fluid through the threads.
IMPORTANT

After wiring has been completed, check all


wiring screws for tightness.

These switches should be


mounted so the wobble
stick or cat whisker will not
deflect beyond the
maximum travel position.
This avoids excessive
backlash that can cause
undesirable repetition of
contact.
