Lehigh now has the capability to offer tie rod mounted limit switches on high pressure (HP series) and LSSW (stainless series) cylinders. The advantage of tie rod mounted switches is the ability to sense piston position anywhere along the stroke. In the past, end-of-stroke piston sensing was the only option available. The switch senses a magnet in a groove on the piston through the tube wall. The cylinder tube and piston must be made of non-ferrous material.

This new switch option is available for cylinder bores 1 1/2” through 4”. The switches can be used with any standard catalog NFPA mounting option.
