Dillon DynaSwitch Load Limit Switches

The Dillon DynaSwitch is a reliable, cost-effective way to control force and prevent overloads. It can be used on cranes, hoists, and elevators to shut off power when an overload condition exists, or warn workers of an impending overload. The DynaSwitch system is built with a force beam that operates in either tension or compression, and can accommodate up to four switches which can be set to trigger under a variety of conditions.
