The Loading Arm Rotational switch is installed on the loading arm to indicate which side of the gantry is in use. In addition stop lugs are also fitted to the swing joint and the fixed flange. These stops restrict the angle of rotation and therefore also prevent twisting and damage to cables. These switches can be used on both top or bottom loading arms.
We can offer loading arms equipped with electrical components to signal many different positions or conditions. Signals can be given with the use of either electro-mechanical microswitches or proximity switches.
Both types of switches have ATEX certification.
