In the industrial field, what is the difference between the limit switch and the travel switch?

1、Limit switch:

The limit switch, also known as the travel switch, can be installed on stationary objects or moving objects, such as moving vehicles, doors, etc. When the moving object is close to the stationary object, the rod of the limit switch drives the contact of the switch, and also makes the closed contact open or disconnected.

The circuit and motor can be controlled by adjusting the switching state of the switching contacts. Therefore, the limit switch can also include rotation and straight line.

2, Travel Switch

The travel switch is a power switch that determines the circuit through the movement of the object. The limit switch is also known as the travel switch, the limit switch and the travel switch are all position switches, but the travel switch as an input signal control circuit can detect the travel within a suitable distance.

3, The limit switch, also known as the travel switch, is a contact switch, suitable for one-way position detection. Due to the contact, the service life is relatively short.

Summary: the limit switch and the travel switch are all position switches, but as an input signal control circuit, the travel switch can also detect the travel within an appropriate distance. Unlike the limit switch, which detects the limit signal, it plays a stopping and protecting role.
