Oscar Rotary Limit Switch

The OSCAR rotary limit switch features two outputs which can be set to different gear ratios, allowing a single rotary limit switch to perform separate functions at separate times.  This essentially combines the function of two separate rotary limit switches into one unit, saving money, space and installation time.  The OSCAR can also be fitted with potentiometers and encoders for more precise control.  The OSCAR features stainless steel (AISI 430F or AISI 303) transmission and gear driving shafts rotating on ball bearings for sturdy and smooth rotation.  The gears and drive bushings are made from self-lubricating technopolymer.

The OSCAR can be configured with gear ratios from 1:1 to 1:1550 and 2 cam sets with up to 12 switches.  An assortment of couplings, pinions, and flanges allow the OSCAR to be adapted to a massive assortment of applications, while IP66, IP67 and IP69K (NEMA 4X) ratings ensure it will provide reliable service in the most rugged environments.
