Courtesy: HoneywellHoneywell's (NYSE:HON) Limitless Non-Contact Switch uses non-contact technology, enabling the device to actuate based on the presence or absence of magnets installed on a customer’s device – making it suitable for harsh operating environments. 

The battery-operated Limitless Wireless Non-Contact Switch allows customers to choose either top sensing or side sensing. This flexibility can increase efficiency and reduce installation and maintenance costs compared to a traditional wired switch.

Wireless offers advantages over traditional wired switches by reducing total installed costs as there are no wires or conduit to install, no cable wear-and-tear to mend, and no cords or connectors that can be damaged in the application. Wireless also increases flexibility by offering easy reconfiguration in remote or temporary installations.

Instead of a lever, button, or wobble stick, the Limitless Wireless Non-Contact Switch can be actuated with a magnet, simplifying use in tight areas often found in machine tools, packaging machinery, lifts, ag/construction equipment, and industrial machines, or in applications where mechanical actuators are not feasible. Designed for rugged environments, the switch’s zinc head and body are phosphate treated and epoxy finished to deliver sealing to IP67 and NEMA 1, 4, 12, 13, and all-stainless steel hardware.
