The opening and closing functions depend on the direction of actuation, the actuating magnets and the polarity of the actuating magnets.
When the switches and actuators come together, the colours must coincide: Red (S) to red (S) and green (N) to green (N).
Included in delivery
Actuators must be ordered separately.
