Question

What is the conduit section?

The duct openings and wiring openings in Safety Door Switches and Safety Limit Switches are called the conduit sections and this is where the wiring section is sealed.
Refer to the following photographs of structural cross-sections of a D4BS-series Switch.

In the conduit size column in the catalogs, Pg13.5 and M20 are European specifications, G1/2 is the Japanese specification, and 1/2-14NPT is the North American specification.
