Limit Switches

Consistent switching under harsh conditions

Our limit and inductive switch portfolio has been designed for mission critical applications with extended environmental requirements for shock and vibration resistance. We offer both military and industrial-grade versions, and all of our limit switches are enclosed in steel or aluminum housings and sealed up to IP40, IP65, or IP67 depending on the configuration. Our broad selection of limit and switches includes options for 1- and 2-pole switching configurations, various electrical connection types and a number of different actuator geometries and sizes.

Our Kissling high-quality switches are extremely precise and display both reliable and consistent switching behavior under the harshest conditions.  This switch portfolio offers excellent hysteresis and reproducibility values over the entire rated temperature gage. Our switches are all enclosed steel or thermoplast housings and sealed in accordance with the IP67 standard. Customers can select from multiple switching configurations, special models for extended operating temperature ranges or extended life cycles, various electrical connection types, and a number of different housing styles and actuator geometries.
