Counter Weight Limit Switch

Weight Operated Limit Switches are used on the control/power circuit of reversing drives so as to limit their rotation/movement within a predetermined position. Operation:

When the snatch block of the crane reaches its top position the snatch block pushes a plate that is hanging from one end of the lever of the limit switch. Due to the weight placed on the other end of the lever, this lever is pushed up. When the lever is pushed up the shaft to which this lever is connected rotates thereby rotating the cams which eventually open the contacts and disconnect the motor. The electronic limit switch contacts are automatically reset when the lever returns to zero position due to gravitational force.


Counter weight Limit Switches are used for Heavy-duty E.O.T. Cranes, Hoists to prevent over travel of hoisting motion on power and control circuits up to 500 V and 40 Amps. continuous current.
