What Is An Electromechanical Limit Switch?

In the broadest sense, a limit switch is an electromechanical device designed to detect the presence or absence of another physical object, usually a piece of machinery that moves or travels. Perhaps one of the best ways to understand limit switches at a high level is through the many applications they have in the real world.

  1. Detect when a car or garage door is open or closed.
  2. Detect when a door to a vehicle is not fully closed

Electromechanical Switch Endurance

If you're an engineer concerned about the reliability of your switch in a hostile, demanding operational environment, then you're worried about electromechanical switch endurance. In applications like limit switches, safety interlock switches, door open/close switches, and many others, failure of the switch can cause massive downtime, safety hazards, or damage to more expensive equipment that is not easily or cheaply replaced. Electromechanical switch endurance then refers to the ability of your
