They are used to regulate equipment as part of a control system, as safety interlocks, or to count the number of things passing through a point. A limit switch is an electromechanical device made up of an actuator physically connected to a group of contacts. When an item comes into touch with the actuator, the device opens or closes the contacts, establishing or breaking an electrical connection.
Limit switches are utilized in a wide range of applications and situations due to their robustness, simplicity of installation, and dependability. They can determine an object’s existence or absence, passage, location, and end of transit. They were initially employed to establish an object’s limit of travel, thus the term “Limit Switch.”
