 ===== Adjustable Limit Switches ===== ===== Adjustable Limit Switches =====
  
-LS stages are equipped with adjustable magnetic limit switches that can be used to limit the stage travel range. ​ The limit magnets are housed in a dovetail assembly in the face of the LS stage slide. ​ The magnets polarity dependent and are marked with either a red or white paint dot.  The magnet with the white dot is the //Upper// limit (stops travel directed away fomr the motor end of the stage), the red dot for the //Lower// limit. ​  +==== Newer Dovetail Style ==== 
-When the limit magnet is felt by the Hall sensor in the stage body, the limit indicator will show on the controller display and motion will stop in the direction into the limit. ​ +

 +On older linear stages, the limit magnets were held in a series of small holes, kept in place with a 0.05 in set-screw. Limits were adjusted my unscrewing the set-screw, extracting the magnet and placing it in a different hole.
