Limit Switches

Related to Limit switches we co-operation with TER. This Italian company has acquired decades of experience in designing and manufacturing rotary limit switches and position limit switches. TER is providing now four series of rotary limit switches, used to control the movement of industrial machinery when in need of measuring the movement on the basis of the rotation angle and/or of the number of shaft revolutions.

Rotary limit switches are used in particular in

  • Industrial and construction lifting plants to control gantry cranes, track cranes, jib cranes, wall-mounted jib cranes, tower cranes and winches for construction sites.
  • In the automation industry to command and control systems to manage machines and processes, thus reducing the need for human intervention.
  • Stage technology to control the equipment used to move stage sets, curtains etc.
  • Wind turbines for managing and controlling the pitch angle of the blades (pitch control) and the position of the nacelle (yaw control).
  • windturbines in het besturingssysteem van de hoekverstelling van de bladen (pitch control) en de positie van de gondel (yaw control).

TER is providing several series of position limit switches

  • Aluminum or thermoplastic materia
  • With single rod or rod with roller
  • Cross rods, “T” rods or with various types of heads and actuators allowing for diversified switch activation modes.

The machines equipped with TER limit switches operate in difficult thermal conditions (low or high operating temperatures) with great thermal shifts between night and day, and they are subject to a variety of weather conditions (water, dust, UV rays and salt). They therefore need components with a high degree of protection against weather effects, resistance to extreme temperatures, high mechanical and electrical durability and accuracy in control. All components must be precise, reliable and safe to ensure good handling control, guarantee maximum operating safety, prevent personal injury and damage to objects, and prevent collisions and impact when a number of machines of the same type or similar are present in the same area.
