These Mechanical Limit Switch Cables are an easy and neat way of connecting limit switches to RAMPS boards, and utilise two 24AWG cables with a 2-pin SIL housing on one end and two 2.8mm spade connector female crimp terminals on the other. The SIL housing then snugly fits onto the associated pins on the RAMPS 1.4 Arduino Shield, while the spade connectors attach directly onto the rectangular pins on Mechanical Limit Switches.

The benefit of these is that they offer a neat, tidy and easy-to-install solution for connecting these components to the system, so that you don’t have to resort to building your own cables or figuring out other ways to integrate limit switches into your 3D Printers. They come with 40cm 24AWG cables that are capable of handling 300V and 80°C without encountering problems, and the cables are colour-coded blue and black for easy identification when installing them.

Typical Applications for these Mechanical Limit Switch Cables:

While these Mechanical Limit Switch Cables are designed to connect mechanical limit switches to RAMPS 1.4 Arduino Shields, they can be used for a range of other projects too. And instead of connecting the SIL housing connector to a RAMPS board, they could be connected to an Arduino or other microcontroller board to produce a wide variety of different results. Projects that could take advantage of these cables could include:

  • Building a pet-feeder that drops kibble or other pet food when your pet presses a button or stands on a floor-plate.
  • Designing an automatic filling mechanism that uses a float to monitor the levels of liquids and refills containers when the float is below a predetermined level.
  • Crafting a track-switcher for a train set that is activated when the train activates a limit switch while driving over or past a certain point.

As you can see, there are many ways in which this could be useful in conjunction with mechanical limit switches and controller boards, despite the fact that we simply build and stock these for 3D Printing.
