Linear Actuator Switches
Linear actuator switches allow the user to manually activate and deactivate power to a linear actuator, commonly via electricity or air pressure. Linear actuator switches are available in a wide range of mounting styles and types to suit your application, providing a simple yet versatile form of operation.
What types of linear actuator switches are available?
There are various types of linear actuator switches available, each with different characteristics. The most common types of switches include:
- Latching - When activated the switch will stay in that position until pressed the other way
- Momentary - Often spring loaded to return the switch to the centre position once released
- Reed - Operated via a magnetic field once activated
- Solid State - Operated when an external AC or DC voltage is applied
