The Pro-Line Tripper Position Switch is a heavy duty limit switch. It is often used to indicate the position of a tripper on a conveyor with multiple discharge points. However, it can be used anywhere you need an extremely heavy duty limit switch with physical activation.
The actuating arm of the Tripper Position Switch uses a large Acetal contact roller, 3 in diameter by 1.75 in wide. When the roller makes contact it rotates the actuation shaft which has two cams inside the housing. Each cam actuates an independent SPDT microswitch for position or alarm signals.
The Tripper Position Switch can be ordered with an option where one of the SPDT switches is actuated with clockwise rotation and the other SPDT switch is actuated with counterclockwise rotation. This allows you to identify which direction the switch is activated from.
