Johnson Electric provides a range of application specific, highly reliable switch technology platforms for position detection. These switches are used for position sensing and multiple auxiliary functions. The small size of these switches combined with long actuation life are critical to a broad range of applications. Our Burgess brand Position Switches are custom engineered for a wide range of size, force and connection system requirements. Johnson Electric switch technologies are designed with high precision, reliability and long life and set the industry standard.
Johnson Electric, under its Saia and the Burgess brands, provides a range of highly reliable switch platforms for position detection. Johnson Electric's custom engineered microswitch technology platforms address actuator position sensing functions in a wide range of applications including vending machines, home technologies, power tools, industrial equipment and valves.
Our switches span a broad range of sizes, forces and connection methods in sealed and unsealed variants. The fundamental requirements of precision, reliability and long life are found in all Johnson Electric switch technology platforms. Size, electrical rating, temperature and environmental factors are very important considerations. Our switches are customizable based on specific application requirements whether it is detecting disposable coffee cup position in a vending machine or the position of HVAC dampers. Custom engineered microswitches are also placed within high speed processing and sorting machines to provide their control systems with position detection signals. The small size and environmental resistance of the switch as well as the long actuation life are critical to makers of high speed, high cycle rate machinery. The Johnson Electric microswitch product platform includes switches that meet IP40 to IP67 requirements in high or low current and high temperature versions.
