Switches • Speed Switches

Speed switches control the rotary motion of equipment, and are ideal for detecting unwanted slowdowns and stoppages of process equipment.

Speed switches indicate and control the rotary motion of equipment, and are ideal for detecting unwanted slowdowns and stoppages of process equipment.These switches are used in variety industrial applications including: conveyors, blowers, motors, drums, rotary feeders, bucket elevators, fans, airlocks, screening machines, crushers, dryers, burners, and rotary kilns.The operating range of industrial speed switches is typically between 0.1 and 2,000 RPM. Speed switches are shaft or pulse driven, and can be electro mechanical - needing no electrical input – or electronic.
