EUCHNER Trip Dogs (Cams) and Trip Rails (Cam Trays) are used to actuate mechanical and inductive limit switches. The trip rail is mounted to a moving member and the trip dogs are fastened to the rail. The assembly moves as the machine member moves, thus causing switch actuation. EUCHNER offers a wide variety of trip dogs and trip rails to fit your applications.
