General purpose of a plunger switch is activate or deactivate power to machinery when travel limits have been exceeded to keep people and equipment safe from malfunctioning machinery.
Plunger switches operate with physical force. When the actuator is pressed, it opens or closes the electrical circuit turning the device which is powered on or off. Baltech plunger switches are extremely shock, vibration and temperature resistant and are designed to use both vertical and angular actuation. We offer a wide variety of plunger configuration options depending on your requests.
Baltech also offers high precision position sensor based on plunger switch.
