The precision machine type not causing a mutual interference, unlike proximity sensors, can detect stably by narrow pitch.

5μm in repetitive accuracy

5μm in repetitive accuracy

The precision positioning switch using no amp does not cause signal point drift due to external environment or self-generation and can output stable high precision signals.
This position switches endure 10 million times operation mechanically and electrically.

Eliminate costly intermediate actuators and design the machine compact

Eliminate costly intermediate actuators
and design the machine compact

Positioning Contact Switches need no dogs or intermediate actuators by the measuring element of the switch customized for the detected object.
This enables reducing cost and downsizing machines.

Applications
