PHD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial automation solutions, is pleased to release the JC1STP Teachable 2 Position Switch Mounting Kit for PHD’s Series 8400 and Series 190/191 Grippers.

Mounting kits provide the switch plate with slots for either one or two Series JC1STP Switches to mount to the bottom surface of the grippers. Using two switches allows sensing of up to four jaw positions throughout the jaw travel. Since this accessory uses an existing switch ready option and only requires ordering the mounting plate and switches, it is very easy to apply.

Benefits include:

  • Lower cost for jaw position sensing - up to 50% less
  • Easy installation and set-up
  • Sense up to four jaw positions
  • Clean, compact, and easy retrofit
  • Available for all sizes of grippers
  • Simple program logic
