Limit Switch Unlimited Uses – Part 2

The second part in our continuing series on CPI Limit Switch applications highlights a few of the extreme duty deployments where harsh outdoor conditions, high vibration, and heavy usage are the norm. Many of these kinds of implementations can be… Continue reading Limit Switch Unlimited Uses – Part 2

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… Continue reading What Is An Electromechanical Limit Switch?

What is a Micro Switch?

So called “Micro Switches” have been around for many years and are made by a large variety of manufacturers.  While the Micro Switch trademark is owned by Honeywell (who did not invent it, merely purchased it…), it has become part of… Continue reading What is a Micro Switch?

Taking Limit Switches to the Limit

Applications for CPI limit switches are often safety related or critical to the performance of a machine where failure would be catastrophic. (or catastrophically expensive to fix…) Add requirements such as 5 million electro-mechanical cycles, precise actuation points, and a… Continue reading Taking Limit Switches to the Limit

Momentary Switches for Extreme Duty – Reducing Failure Rates

Momentary Switch Design Parameters Extreme duty applications that require a momentary switch with ultra harsh environmental and duty cycle requirements  call for more than just a “weatherproof” or “splashproof” rated component. For more than 40 years CPI’s has made precisely… Continue reading Momentary Switches for Extreme Duty – Reducing Failure Rates

Waterproof Momentary Switch Technology

For extreme duty applications a mechanically activated momentary switch is often a critically necessary electronic component, and can also be a primary operational failure point. CPI’s line of Waterproof Momentary switches have been staying dry and operational for over 40… Continue reading Waterproof Momentary Switch Technology
