LimitlessTM Limit Switch Series

WGLA Global Limit Switches, WLS Heavy-Duty Limit Switches

Honeywell´s LimitlessTM product line combines the best of Honeywell´s global limit switches with the latest commercial state-of-the-art wireless technology. Wireless-enabled limit switches can be used for position sensing and presence/ absence detection for an endless number of applications.

The LimitlesTM Series is especially beneficial for remote monitoring applications where wiring or wire maintenance is not physically possible or economically feasible. Combining this greater flexibility with proven harsh-duty packaging can result in increased efficiencies for machines, equipment, OEMs, and operators.
