Premium cross lever limit switches for cranes and hoists

Conveying and lifting technology has to cope with countless requirements and regulations for operators and machines. Operators and manufacturers of cranes attach great importance to permanent safety and reliability of the machines under all environmental conditions.

The safe limitation of the end positions of cranes and cross travel of bridge cranes is achieved by our cross lever limit switches. In addition to the basic stop function of trolley travel for each direction via 2 contacts, we are also able to implement a deceleration and stop function via 4 contacts. In addition, special switching configurations allow the exclusion of defined areas outside the travel range of the crane.

Cross lever limit switches of the series Alpha, Beta and Lambda are specially designed for use in heavy industry. All materials used guarantee robustness, good mechanical stability and maximum resistance to oil, gas and extreme temperature fluctuations.

Technological progress in crane development places higher demands on the cross lever limit switches for new machines. All our cross lever limit switches are designed for high speed cranes and can be operated with a maximum approach speed of 3m/s. The limit switches are designed for use with high speed cranes. The housings of the cross lever limit switches are made of extremely resistant ZAMAK die-cast material or fibre-reinforced thermoplastic, which is also resistant to high mechanical loads.

All our cross limit switches are equipped with 3 possible cable entries in size M20. This allows a flexible cable routing for the installers. We also offer pre-wiring. The operator can choose between:

  • Delivery of pre-wired contacts with plug installed in the housing (M20, number of poles different),
  • delivery of pre-wired contacts with cable in the required length.

The realisation of tailor-made solutions in the shortest possible time is a challenge that we face on a daily basis. In addition to all standard cross limit switches shown in our catalogue, we can offer you a wide range of special solutions according to your requirements. We look forward to working on your specifications.
