General Specifications
   Switch Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Electromechanical       Electromechanical switches have mechanical contacts, relays, or reeds. 
   Solid State       Solid-state switches are electronic and do not have moving parts. Most use a normally-open circuit.  
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Contact Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Momentary Contact       Momentary contact means that the switch is open or closed only during actuation. Force is removed after actuation, and the switch reverts to its normal position. Sometimes, momentary contact is referred to as spring return. 
   Maintained Contact       Maintained contact means that the switch contacts remain in the "triggered" position even after the actuator has been released. The contacts are reset only by further mechanical action of the operating head. 
   Positive Opening       Positive opening means that the contact-point opens reliably and then remains open, in the activated position, even in the event of a mechanical failure (e.g., the breakage of a spring or contact weld). Positive opening is sometimes called positive breaking contacts. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Normal State       
   Your choices are...         
   Normally Open (NO)       Normally open (NO) means that the switch contacts, when in their open position, interrupt the circuit. When actuated, the contacts close.  
   Normally Closed (NC)       Normally closed (NC) means that the switch contacts, when in their normally closed position, establish a circuit. When actuated, the contacts open. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Switch Configuration       
   Your choices are...         
   Single Pole, Single Throw (SPST)       Single pole, single throw (SPST) makes or breaks the connection of a single conductor in a single branch circuit. Typically, a SPST switch has two terminals and is called a single-pole switch. 
   Single Pole, Double Throw (SPDT)       Single pole, double throw (SPDT) makes or breaks the connection of a single conductor with either of two other single conductors. Typically, a SPDT switch has three terminals and is called a three-way switch. 
   Double Pole, Single Throw (DPST)       Double pole, single throw (DPST) makes or breaks the connection of two circuit conductors in a single branch circuit. Typically, a DPST switch has four terminals. 
   Double Pole, Double Throw (DPDT)       Double pole, double throw (DPDT) makes or breaks the connection of two conductors to two separate circuits. Typically, a DPDT switch has six terminals and is available in both momentary and maintained contact versions. 
   Other       Other unlisted poles and throws. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Linear Actuator Types       
   Your choices are...         
   Pushbutton or Plunger       The actuator is a pushbutton or plunger. 
   Push Roller       The actuator is a pushbutton with a roller. 
   Standard Lever / Leaf       The actuator is a standard lever or leaf that rotates about a fixed point. 
   Roller Lever / Leaf       The lever or leaf has a roller attached. 
   Adjustable Lever / Leaf       The lever or leaf is adjustable. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary configuration. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Connection Options      There are numerous ways to connect a limit switch into an existing system, please contact manufacturer for more specifics, such as wire options (gauge), materials and coatings.
   Your choices are...         
   Integral Cable       Electrical connections are made using an integrated cable. 
   Solder Terminal       Terminals require soldering for a positive electrical connection. 
   Screw Terminals       Terminals require the use of a screw or clamp for a positive electrical connection. 
   Spade Terminals       Electrical connections are made using spade terminal lugs. 
   Other       Other connection options. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Orientation      The orientation of the limit switch actuator is critical when determining sizing requirements.
   Your choices are...         
   Top Mounted Actuator       The actuator is oriented on the top of the limit switch. 
   Side Mounted Actuator       The actuator is oriented on the side of the limit switch. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Enclosed Switch Housing?       The switch is inside housing and accessed with a conduit. This housing may be NEMA rated.  
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Features and Approvals
   Certifications / Approvals       
   Your choices are...         
   CE Certification?       CE Marking indicates that a product complies with the essential requirements of relevant European Union (EU) directives that uphold national standards for health, safety and environmental protection. CE Marking is required in the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA), an organization that consists of the twenty five member states of the EU and the three members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). CE Marking refers to the safety of a product. It is not a quality standard. 
   CSA Certification?       Products that bear a CSA Mark have been tested by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and meet applicable standards for safety and/or performance. These standards are written and administered by organizations such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and CSA International. CSA Marks may appear alone or with indicators. CSA Marks that appear alone are used with products certified primarily for the Canadian market, to the applicable Canadian standards. CSA Marks that appear with the indicators “C” and “US” or “NRTL/C” is used with products certified for both the U.S. and Canadian markets, to the applicable U.S. and Canadian standards. 
   UL listed?       The UL Listing Mark indicates that Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) has determined that representative samples of the product meet UL's safety requirements. These requirements are primarily based on UL's own published Standards for Safety. The UL Listing Mark is seen commonly on appliances and computer equipment, furnaces and heaters, fuses, electrical panelboard, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers and sprinkler systems, personal flotation devices like life jackets and life preservers, bullet resistant glass, and thousands of other products.
