Limit Switches

Our Limit Switches are electro-mechanical devices that consist of an actuator mechanically linked to a set of contacts. When an object comes into contact with the actuator, the device operates the contacts to make or break an electrical connection. Our limit switches work in a variety of applications and environments because of their ruggedness, simple visible operation, easy installation and reliable operation.

Compact/Precision Limit Switches

Compact/Precision Limit Switches

Our compact, precision, and small precision limit switches withstand the rugged environments that industrial applications demand. Each style uses industry standard mounting dimensions and operating characteristics. Our 802B family of limit switches can be mounted in areas that traditional NEMA limit switches cannot, due to their size and mounting options.

IEC Limit Switches

IEC Limit Switches

Our IEC Limit Switches have electrical interlocking of control circuits to the movement of the units actuator. Switch operation requires physical contact from the moving part of the machinery to the unit's actuator. These units are ideal for applications requiring sensing at either side of a sliding guard door.
