What is the difference between tubular drives with electronic and mechanical limit switches?

On tubular drives with mechanical limit switches, shutdown in the hanging's upper and lower end position is via a micro switch in each case. The shutdown position for the relevant sense of rotation can be adjusted via a limit switch setting screw on the drive head.

For drives with an electronic limit switch unit, the shutdown points are adjusted via the connecting cable and stored. Depending on the type, these drives enable special movement strategies or hanging protection functions via this end switch unit.
