A threaded device attached to the end of a cable cylinder assembly for convenience in making connections and adjustments. One terminal is attached to the piston, while the other is attached to the bracket (clevis).
These switches are designed for signaling end-of-stroke position to devices such as programmable controllers. They can be used to operate ac relays and solenoids if a protection circuit is used and if current and voltage limits are observed.
Due to the nature of loads and aluminum extrusions tube deflection will occur if cylinder (linear slide) is supported only on the ends without tube supports at recommended intervals along length of cylinder.
