A cam switch is a versatile device you can found in industrial automation. This type of device uses a cam shaft's rotation to operate a number of switches at once. Some of the applications for these switches are stamping machines, forging presses, sheet metal forming machines, presses, transport equipment, mining equipment, assembly machinery, packaging machinery, construction machinery, and auto machinery.

Other uses for a cam switch include air conditioners and electrical switchboards. These switches can perform a multitude of different functions, so it is important to narrow your search to specific types, such as motor reversing switches, on and off switches, load on and off switches, high pressure washer switch, double throw switches, voltmeter switches, multi-step switches, ammeter switches, and voltage changeover switches.

When considering which Cam Switch is the right fit, some of the features to take a look at are the number of positions a switch has, the number of contacts, the number of poles, and the voltage of the switch. The number of contacts and poles determine how many functions the device can control.
