HeavyDuty speed switches

Reliable switching for maximum safety.

Baumer HeavyDuty speed switches have set standards with regard to robustness, reliable function and product range variety for many years. They often perform a decisive safety function by triggering a switching point when operating speeds go higher or lower than specified.
