Limit switches automatically monitor and indicate whether the movement limits of a particular device have been exceeded. A standard industrial limit switch is an electromechanical device that contains an actuator linked to a series of contacts. When an object meets the actuator, the limit switch triggers the contacts to either form or break an electrical connection. Limit switches are commonly employed in a wide range of applications and under a variety of operating conditions due to their ease of installation, relatively straightforward design, ruggedness, and reliability.
Many Variations in Standard Limit Switches
A Wide Range of Models
The series includes many different actuators that you select to match the workpiece shape and motion, and a wide range of Switch variations, such as models with operation indicators for easier working and maintenance and models with different types of connectors.
Select from Six Types of Environment Resistance
The series includes Airtight Switches, Hermetic Switches, Heat resistant Switches, Low-temperature Switches, Corrosion-proof switches, and Weather-proof Switches. You can select the model based on the onsite environment.
» Flat springs with an improved lever ratio of the built-in switch ensure smooth snap action and long life expectancy.
» Protection cover protects the built-in switch from dust and oil. Plunger incorporates a tough seal cap that lasts for a long time.
» One touch connector eliminates need for tedious wiring operations and reduces downtime for wiring and maintenance (models with standard, easy-to-use screw terminals are also available).
» Minute load model with gold cladding is optimal for electronic control.
�� Molded terminal types as well as molded terminal types with operating indicator lamps are available for screw terminal systems.
