Limit switch is used for industrial submissions in an electromechanical device, it consists of a mechanical actuator, which is linked to a series of electrical contacts. When an object comes in contact with the actuator plunger, there is a movement that results in electric contact within the switch to close or open the electrical connection. It uses the mechanical movement of the actuator plunger in order to control or change the electrical switch state.
What are the Advantages and disadvantages of limit switches?
- Simple and straightforward designs.
- Exhibits high accuracy and repeatability.
- Simple for installation.
- Rugged and reliable.
Disadvantages or limitations:
- Not suited for every application.
They are used for instruments that operate at a relatively low speed because limit switch relies on mechanical action.
They must get physically contacted with the target in order to operate, as they are contact sensors.
Limit switch due to their mechanical design tends to wear down over time and hence needs time-to-time replacements.
