Honeywell MICRO SWITCH™ Heavy Duty Limit Switches

Product Announcement from Honeywell Sensing and Internet of Things


Honeywell and Control’s MICRO SWITCH™ heavy-duty limit switches’ modular construction allows for a wide variety of actuator styles, operating heads, and electrical circuitry options. The plug-in versions greatly reduce downtime on production lines with high actuation rates as replacement of the switch is accomplished in seconds. The base receptacle contains all the wiring and conduit connection while the switching component with operating head easily assembles to the base and is attached with two screws.
