Setting up a limit switch.

Thomson Industries has released a new educational video to help design engineers to setup a limit switch correctly with a Thomson linear unit.

Kyle Thompson, Global Product Line Manager, Systems at Thomson, explains in the video, “A limit switch is operated by the motion of a linear unit as part of a control system. Each limit switch sent out with a Thomson linear system comes with a track to match the stroke length of the unit."

Kyle demonstrates how to install the limit switch onto the track in the video. He explains: “The user only needs to slide it into position on any part of the unit and screw it down until secure. This can be adjusted as necessary for where the engineer wants to mount the unit.” The cover strip for each linear unit is provided for aesthetic protection. Each limit switches cables can slide into position on the track. The video itself, "Linear Systems: Limit Switch Setup," and others  may be viewed at the Thomson Tech Tips Videos section of their website.
