The “Z Switch” or “Limit Switch” is an electrical switch designed to detect the presence or absence of an object within its range of motion. It is equipped with a mechanical actuator that is activated when the object comes in contact with it, causing the switch to change its state. Limit switches are commonly used in industrial applications to control machinery and equipment. They serve as safety devices to prevent overtravel or overloading of mechanical components and ensure that certain positions or limits are not exceeded. These switches play a critical role in automating processes and providing feedback to control systems, contributing to the overall efficiency and safety of various industrial operations.
