MCWP Switches

Functional & final limit switches on the top and bottom end of the mast

  • Up and down limit cams are located at the top and bottom of the mast and act on the normal limit switches located on the work platform. These provide safe and automatic stopping at the normal terminal positions of the platform.
  • Additional protection is provided by means of a final limit switch with its cams located a minimum prescribed distance above and below the functional limit positions. Activation of this switch removes power to the platform should some fault occur with the normal switches.
MCWP Inductive Mast Dectector

Inductive mast detector

  • To further enhance the safety, there is a mast detector sensor located on the platform. When the platform reaches its top position, the sensor will detect that there is no mast connected so the platform will automatically stop to prevent its further movement.
