The Mini Cam model M1350 is an excellent substitute for electromechanical rotary cam limit switches. Like rotary cam switches, the Mini Cam is used to control outputs based on the position of the shaft to which it is coupled. The mini Cam utilizes slotted photoelectric switches and interrupting cam discs mounted on a rotating shaft.
The cam discs consist of two halves that can be adjusted to create any required dwell. When the Mini Cam shaft rotates the cam disc passes or interrupts the light beam through the photoelectric switch at the appropriate shaft angle.
The DIP switches are provided to select the outputs to turn on when the light is interrupted, or when light is passed. The solid state switching, ease of set up and improved accuracy help increase the productivity of your machine.
