Limit Switches

Joyce limit switches allow you to set precise travel limits and stops on Joyce jacks and actuators. They are also ideal in any application where rotary motion of a machine component can be used to indicate linear motion of another part. They are compatible with 2-ton through 150-ton jacks, actuators, electric cylinders, and integrated actuators.
