July 10, 2017 - AutomationDirect has added a line of limit/position switches from Metrol. These mechanical limit switches have repeatability down to 10, 5, 3, and even 0.5 microns (µm) depending on the specific model.
Their size allows them to be mounted in tight locations. With a 4mm diameter barrel and length of 12.8 mm, model BP4SWA is a small precision limit switch.
In addition to the 4mm smooth barrel, these switches are also available in 5mm and 6mm smooth barrel, as well as M5, M6, M8, & M10 threaded barrels. While the smallest versions use “core wire” due to space constraints, larger models include rugged 2m or 3m pigtail cables and have LED indicators built-in.
Five precision limit switch series are available: precision touch with 3 micron or 5 micron accuracy; high precision touch and tool setter with 0.5 micron accuracy; ball plunger with 10 micron accuracy, and high temperature rated with 10 micron accuracy and operating temperatures up to 200°C.
In business since 1994, AutomationDirect is a distributor offering thousands of industrial automation products for electrical control systems, including PLCs, operator interfaces, AC drives, motors, stepper systems, sensors, motor controls, enclosures and more.
