Gemco 2006 RLS also prevents overtravel by cutting power to the motor or device that is driving a machine, for instance, a crane, this secures the equipment, the goods, the workflow and most importantly the personnel.

Gemco 2006 series is rated for more than 15 million operations, the all-metal gearing and the shaft tested to up to 2000 RPM, works both clockwise and counter-clockwise. The 2006 Series is manufactured with electrical switches that are UL recognized.

The simplicity of the rotary limit switch the key to the success, the limit switch is easy to set up, very simple wiring and will work flawlessly with no maintenance due to the self-lubricating bearings.
