 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 //Lower// limit (stops travel directed away from the motor end of the stage), the red dot for the //Upper// limit.  ​ 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 //Lower// limit (stops travel directed away from the motor end of the stage), the red dot for the //Upper// 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.  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.
