April 12, 2018 – AutomationDirect announced mini stopper and stopper bolt precision limit switches from Metrol. Mini stopper limit switches incorporate a mechanical stop along with the limit switch function, eliminating the need for a separate stop in many applications. With 10 micron repeatability and high contact force, these stainless steel switches are suitable for use in precision indexing/positioning applications.
Stopper bolt limit switches can take the place of a stop bolt and a separate switch for indication. Metrol stopper bolt precision limit switches incorporate a mechanical stop along with the limit switch function and provide 2 tasks with one device by housing a high-accuracy switch in a stopper bolt. These are designed to have the sensed parts come to a stop against them and not damage the switch.
