AMETEK Rotary Limit Switch Brochure

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

AMETEK Factory Automation engineers, manufactures, and markets sensors and controls for demanding and harsh industrial environments. Our Geared Rotary Limit Switch line is designed for longevity. Units include all metal gearing and switches that are rated for 15 million operations.

The Gemco® Geared Rotary Limit Switches are primarily used in material handling and rotary operations where motion is expressed in shaft rotation. The input shaft is typically connected to the motor or drive mechanism. After a set amount of turns, the cam trips the switches, thus starting or stopping the movement. The primary purpose of the switch is to control the intermediate or end limits in linear or rotary motion. These switches are often used as a safety device to protect against accidental damage to equipment due to over-travel.

To assist in this decision-making process, we have created a new high-level brochure and two new datasheets. Please take a few minutes to review these new pieces of collateral.
