How do I specify Joy Stick XKDF Piggy Back Contacts?

Piggy Back Contacts give an additional signal contact duplicating the contact signal of the contact to which they are attached.
For a Normally Closed (NC) Contact they give the same signal, however if a Normally Open (NO) Contact is used the sense of the signal is reversed.
Piggy Back contacts are fitted on the back of a selected existing contact marked in the scheme.
The switch at the same point as the contact that they are mounted on.
Piggy Back contacts can be either
  • Normally Open (NO) Part Number ZB2BE101
  • Normally Closed (NC) Part Number ZB2BE102

Contact Block Normally Open used for XKDF joy sticks and other applicationsContact Block Normally Closed used for XKDF joy sticks and other applications
ZB2BE101 & ZB2BE102 Contact Blocks

Use the scheme sheet box marked "Lever Gate" to enter the details of the contact type that you require and a * on every contact in the scheme sheet drum to specify where the contact is required.

Note: It is not possible to use the Automated On-Line tool to configure "Piggy Back" contacts
Note: There is an additional charge per contact, however this is only the list price of each additional contact fitted.
