The Benefits of Having a Mechanical Internal Limit Switch
A Limit Switch prevents the gate from traveling past a fixed point during the open and close transitions. When choosing a gate opener for your gate, keep in mind that not all models have the same type of Limit Switches. The three types of Limit Switches offered are:
- Traditional Mechanical Limit Switch
- Magnetic Limit Switch
- Digital Limit Switch

A Mechanical Internal Limit Switch means that all adjustments are done internally and that you will not have to add any additional parts to your gate as you would with a Magnetic Limit Switch. This will save you a lot of time and money as well as making the installation process a lot easier. In the end you will also have an aesthetically pleasing gate with no additional hardware on it.

This would be a real inconvenience not to mention a safety concern if you are unable to get to your gate for any reason.
