Switch for all industries

With us you get maintenance gearbox and travel switches that are perfectly adapted to your working environment.

Whether in the industrial sector, in construction machinery, materials handling or the rail industry – our switches always convince by their
high-quality workmanship and long service life.


Maintenance switches

Extreme environmental condition, highest safety requirements – our maintenance switches have proven their value over several decades of use in cement plants, on belt drives or in port crane control applications. If you are looking for a robust, long-lasting switch, this maintenance switch is the right one for you. We deliver it with a 10 year guarantee.

You receive the cam switch in various versions in a hierarchy according to switch output. The high durability and reliability are guaranteed with the solid ball handle, the milled cam discs, ceramic spark chambers, the powerful blow magnet and the large contact opening path, depending on the version.

We can equip the maintenance switch with solid metal locking mechanisms so that you can attach a padlock. We also deliver it installed in a sturdy housing made of cast aluminum or metal.

Gear limit switches

If you are looking for a slewing limit switch for your lifting equipment applications, Spohn + Burkhardt gear limit switches are the perfect choice. These modularly designed switching devices are robust and can be adapted to your individual requirements. For example, multiple adjustable contacts, potentiometers or encoders can be flanged onto the metal drive shaft according to your requirements. We install the limit switch in a powder-coated steel sheet or stainless steel housing in the appropriate size for the switch.

Braking controllers

Joysticks are used widely in the railway and shipping sectors. Switches with contacts and encoders are used primarily. The switch is defined by its functions and output signals.

We have developed the switches FBS, VNS0 and ST0 for railway applications. They can each be equipped with different features and truly impress with their friction brake and/or resetting function. We also have developed numerous special joysticks with Hall sensors, mechanical reset blocks, positively actuated contacts and dead man’s function, with other specifications. We also develop ergonomic designs specifically for railway joysticks and make them resistant to ozone and UV radiation.

Special switches

Special sector-specific challenges require custom configurations. For this reason, we develop custom solutions, such as switches with a double drive or rotary potentiometer for Ex applications. We also install hardware contacts in DC and AC versions that are controlled with proven drive mechanisms, as well as DC and AC contacts. Just ask us – we’ll find an optimal solution!

Take advantage of the benefits of Spohn + Burkhardt: fast production, a worldwide dealer network and reliable spare parts service. We look forward to your inquiry and can advise you on the right switch for your application.
