Tango Position Limit Switches

Tango is a position limit switch designed to control overhead travelling cranes, hoists and machine tools. It operates as auxiliary controller of electrical motors through power interfaces, such as contactors or PLCs.

X-type rods can move to 4 maintained positions. Tango is equipped with 1NC slow action switches or, upon request, with 1NO switches. All switches are of the positive opening type, thus suitable for safety functions.

Tango is the latest generation of position limit switches: the peculiar design and the use of high performing polymers ensure high resistance and endurance under the heaviest utilization conditions.

Its design and overall dimensions facilitate installation and maintenance operations.

Both the enclosure and the head of Tango are made of thermoplastic material (nylon reinforced with fiberglass) ensuring wear resistance and protecting the equipment against water and dust. Inner components are made of techno-polymers guaranteeing a long life-cycle and constant performance even at extreme temperatures.
