The Gemco 2000 and 2006 K Type Series Rotary Limit Switch can be used in applications requiring ratios from 5:1 to 5333:1 and is available in two and four circuits. The 2006 Series is primarily used for hoists, elevating jack mechanisms, packaging machinery, material handling equipment, conveyors, door operators and rotary operators where motion is expressed in shaft rotation.

Quality parts make each Rotary Limit Switch highly dependable

The 1/2” input shaft drives a bronze gear which rotates the cam block. The cam block houses independently adjustable cams that actuate the precision type snap action switches. Each switch can be provided with either two or four switches. No minimum speed is specified because snap action contacts are used. Maximum rated speed of the worm shaft is 1000 RPM and can be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise.

NEMA Type 7 & 9 (Hazardous Location) enclosures are designed to meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code for Class 1, Group D, and Class 2.
