Sensors, Switches

Sensor switches are sensors that convert collected information into signals that can be handled by machines, and switches that act as relay devices such as computers, LANs, etc. Main sensors include proximity sensors, micro photosensors, etc. Proximity sensors are sensors that can detect objects without touching them, and some are equipped with equipment for long-distance detection and mutual interference prevention. The micro photosensors are sensors that uses light to perform positioning, and is characterized by its small size, thin shape, power supply reverse connection protection circuit, etc. On the other hand, switches include limit micro switches, contact switches, etc. A limit micro switch is a micro switch with a contact mechanism and an actuator covered by a case, and a limit switch built into a metal or resin case to protect the micro switch. A contact switch is a switch that uses a pressure-sensitive sensor, and is used for positioning of sheet metal in production lines, etc., and for starting the machine starting point.
