Limit & Proximity Switches
What are Limit and Proximity Switches?
Limit switches and Proximity switches are switches used as part of a larger electrical current. Limit switches and Proximity switches are used as part of industrial controls, electrical devices which are repetitively used for heavy-duty tasks such as lifts and commercial vehicle lifts, sensors to record or measure distance or temperature or even break a circuit if something has exceeded its limit.
Limit switches are available with a range of actuator heads, sizes and electrical specifications to suit a range of applications. Limit switches are used to make or break an electrical connection When an object comes into contact with the actuator.
Proximity switches are available with a range of actuator heads, sizes and electrical specifications to suit a range of applications. Proximity switches have sensors to report back how far/close or hot/cold something is when an object meets the actuator.
Our Limit switch and Proximity switch series have the following type of actuator heads available.
- Roller type actuator – this type of actuator has a type of round wheel in a variety of sizes to aid turning or rotation.
- Plunger type of actuator – this type of actuator aid an ‘up’ and ‘down’ motion.
- Rod Lever type of actuator – this type of actuator, is available in a range of heights and thicknesses.

Our range of Control Panels & Automation consists of a range of Illuminated and Non-Illuminated tact Switches, Pots & Encoders, Relays, Toggles and DIP Switches, metal push button switches, metal and plastic indicators, emergency switches, snap-action switches, key-lock switches, ideal for the automation industry, computers or robots, information technologies.
What are Control panels?
Control panels and automation panels are flat and vertical areas that can be encased in a box or unit, where switches or indicators help control or monitor larger appliances. Control Panels can be found in large commercial and even domestic environments.
