KALS BH-USA A-Drive Limit Switch
The KALS BH-USA A-Drive Limit Switch is a high-quality and reliable component designed for boat lift control systems. It is compatible with all sizes of the BH-USA A-Drive direct drive boat lift hoists. The switch is specifically made for boat lift control models ending in an “A,” which indicates their auto stop capabilities.
One of the key features of the KALS BH-USA A-Drive Limit Switch is its factory-wired auto stop capabilities. This feature allows you to raise or lower your boat lift to a specific position at the touch of a button, providing convenient and precise control. Without the auto-stop capability, you would need to hold the button down to start and stop the boat lift movement.
The limit switch is designed to work with Gem Remote Systems, ensuring compatibility and seamless integration. It requires that the A-Drive direct-drive hoist use a BH-USA direct-drive shaft manufactured after August 2015. The limit switch is specifically designed for Gem Remote Systems and may not be compatible with other control systems.
The KALS BH-USA A-Drive Limit Switch comes with an 18-gauge, 3-wire harness, providing durability and reliable electrical connections. The switch is also FFC (Flat Flexible Cable) and ETL (Electrical Testing Laboratories) listed, indicating its compliance with industry standards for safety and performance.
Installation of the limit switch is straightforward. Simply remove the dust cover on the front of the A-Drive direct-drive hoist to expose the end of the drive shaft. The switch has a tab that fits onto the drive shaft, and it uses the existing bolts to mount the special bracket. It is important to note that a limit switch-ready driveshaft, manufactured after August 2015, is required for proper installation and operation.
The KALS BH-USA A-Drive Limit Switch comes with a 9 ft. 3 in. wire length, providing ample flexibility for wiring connections. The wire size is 18 gauge, ensuring sufficient conductivity and durability. The product is packaged in a 14 in. x 8 in. x 4 in. box and weighs approximately 3 lbs.
