A limit switch is absolutely essential for the safety and functionality of the doors. As part of the control system of automatic doors, the limit switches provide increased safety and convenience through automation.
This intelligent design is why automatic garage gates do not close when your car is inconvenient and why it automatically opens when approaching a car. It also allows the door to open or close properly and at the right time, without the need for a human operator.
How Does a Limit Switch Work?
A limit switch is a type of sensor that detects the absence or presence of an object; its position, speed, and range of motion; or its end of the journey. The electromechanical device consists of an actuator such as an arm, knob, lever, roller or piston connected to a set of contacts. When an object comes into contact with the actuator, the unit is signaled to make or break an electrical connection.
For example, a limit switch is the one that turns the light on when you open the refrigerator door. That’s what lets the garage door opener know when the door is fully closed and the engine stops automatically. For swinging or sliding gates found in facilities such as office buildings, apartment complexes, and parking garages, a limit position automatically tells the gate when to open and when it is fully closed, which disables the engine.
