Gear limit switches

If you are looking for a slewing limit switch for your lifting equipment applications, Spohn + Burkhardt gear limit switches are a perfect choice. These modularly designed switching devices are robust and can be adapted to your individual requirements. For example, multiple adjustable contacts, potentiometers or encoders can be flanged onto the metal drive shaft according to your requirements. We install the limit switch in a powder-coated steel sheet or stainless steel housing in the appropriate size for the switch.

Braking controllers

Joysticks are used widely in the railway and shipping sectors. Switches with contacts and encoders are used primarily. The switch is defined by its functions and output signals.

We have developed the switches FBS, VNS0, and ST0 for railway applications. They can each be equipped with different features and truly impress with their friction brake and / or resetting function.

We also have developed numerous special joysticks with Hall sensors, mechanical reset blocks, positively actuated contacts and dead man’s function, with other specifications.

We also develop ergonomic designs specifically for railway joysticks and make them resistant to ozone and UV radiation.

Special switches

Special sector-specific challenges require custom configurations. For this reason, we develop custom solutions, such as switches with a double drive or rotary potentiometer for Ex applications. We also install hardware contacts in DC and AC versions that are controlled with proven drive mechanisms, as well as DC and AC contacts. Just ask us – we’ll find an optimal solution!
