DynaSwitch®In-line Limit Switches

With a durable construction that allows it to operate in even the most extreme environments, DynaSwitch® overload protection devices are recognized as the best in-line limit switches. A reliable, economical way to control forces and prevent overloads, DynaSwitch® force control switches may be used in automation controls where they act as scales.

In addition to shutting off power, DynaSwitch® in-line limit switches are used on cranes, hoists, and elevators where they signal lights, buzzers or klaxons to warn of impending overload conditions.

Cranegard® Clamp On Limit Switches

In those situations where mounting a DynaSwitch® is impossible, the Cranegard® clamps on cables, enabling wire rope hoist, elevator and crane overload prevention and slack line detection.
