  Kiepe Misalignment Switches...



Kiepe Belt Misalignment Switches are used in conveyor monitoring the belt travel. When mounted at the running edges of a conveyor belt, the switches will be operated if the belt deviates from it's designed running line by more than the permissible distance.

  • Maintenance Free Switches

  • Snap Actuating Switches

  • Cast Aluminum, Cast Iron and Naval Brass Housing

  • Available in Zone 1 and Zone 2 "Explosion Proof" Models


This Kiepe misalignment switch is designed for operation on conveyors with belt speeds up to 300 fpm. At 12 degrees from vertical, the VG switch will go into pre-alarm. At 45 degrees cutout will occur and it will be latched. The switch is reset by hand after being latched. There are different contacts (N.O.- Normally Open, N.C.-Normally Closed) available for pre-alarm and final cutout.
