A range of control options may be specified for the supplier’s line of scissors lifts, from simple to complex.
Limit switches are easily mounted and feature an adjustable actuating arm for movement in one direction (such as up and down).
Proximity switches and photo eyes provide a way to signal when the platform has reached its desired position by detecting a steel target.
For continuous position feedback, angle sensors measure the rotation of the lift’s legs to determine the platform position.
The highest degree of accuracy can be achieved with a draw wire transducer or linear displacement transducer—installed in conjunction with a programmable logic controller—as the position feedback device.
