Type of protection (suction side) IP 54
Electrical data of maintenance indicator:  
Max. voltage: 250 V AC/200 V DC
Max. current: 1 A
Contact load: 70 W
Type of protection: IP 65 in inserted and
secured status

The switching function can be changed by turning the electric upper part by 180° (normally closed contact or normally open contact). The state on delivery is a normally closed contact. By inductivity in the direct current circuit the use of suitable protection circuit should be considered. Further maintenance indicator details and designs are available in the maintenance indicator data sheet.

We draw attention to the fact that all values indicated are average values which do not always occur in specific cases of application. Our products are continually being further developed. Values, dimensions and weights can change as a result of this. Our specialized department will be pleased to offer you advice.

We recommend you to contact us concerning applications of our filters in areas governed by the EU Directive 94/9 EC (ATEX 95). The standard version can be used for liquids based on mineral oil (corresponding to the fluids in Group 2 of Directive 97/23 EC Article 9). If you consider to use other fluids please contact us for additional support.

* For the contamination of the housing designs as per 7.1 with medium-pressure spin-on cartriges refer to leaflet "spin-on cartridges" for dimensions and specifications. Operating pressure on request.

10. Installation, operating and maintenance instructions
10.1 Filter installation
When installing the filter make sure that sufficient space is available to remove the spin-on cartridge. Preferably the filter should be installed with the spin-on cartridge pointing downwards.
10.2 Connecting the electrical maintenance indicator
The electrical indicator is connected via a 2-pole appliance plug according to DlN EN 175301-803 with poles marked 1 and 2.
The electrical section can be inverted to change from normally open position to normally closed position or vice versa.
10.3 When should the filter element be replaced??
1 . Filters equipped with visual and electrical maintenance indicator:
During cold starts, the indicator may give a warning signal. Press the red button of the visual indicator once again only after operating temperature has been reached. lf the red button immediately pops up again and/or the electrical signal has not switched off after reaching operating temperature, the filter element must be replaced after the end of the shift.
2 . Filters without maintenance indicator:
The filter element should be replaced after the trial run or flushing of the system. Afterwards follow instructions of the manufacturer.
3 . Please always ensure that you have original Filtration Group spare elements in stock: disposable elements (Sm-x) cannot be cleaned.
10.4 Spin-on cartrige exchange
1 . Stop system and relieve filter from pressure.
2 . Unscrew the spin-on cartridge with the aid of a belt spanner by turning same to the left.
3 . Make sure that the order number on the new spin-on cartridge corresponds to the order number of the name-plate.
4 . The seal of the screw-on cartridge should be lightly oiled.
5 . Screw cartridge on in accordance with the printed-on instructions.
