Haydon offers a miniature electronic switch capable of monitoring the home positions of linear actuators.
The home position switch mounts on the rear sleeve of Haydon’s captive linear motors. This allows the user to identify start, stop or home postions of the actuator.
Depending on your preference, contacts can be normally open or normally closed. The contact closure is repeatable to within one step position, identifying linear movements as low as 0.0005" (0.0013 cm) per step. Multiple contact switches are also available.
The switch allows device manufacturers the ability to monitor movements more precisely for greater control and improved Q.C. When ordering motors with the home position switch, the part number should be preceded by an S. Contact Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions for additional ordering information.
