The gear-switches are suitable for use in the most varied application. In studios and on stages, applications include the control and positioning of carriages, portals and bridges. An important field of application is for the monitoring and control of outriggers, trolleys and lifting movements for cranes. On industrial ovens, gear-switches are used on door and gate control systems. Further applications are to be found on waterways (control of weirs and locks), in environmental protection (sewage plants, flue gas treatment plants), greenhouses and sport stadiums (roof controls).
