  • $\begingroup$ Is this a logic problem? Please provide more detail and background. It may also be helpful to provide your thought process so far. $\endgroup$ – hazzey Oct 10 '15 at 23:58
  • $\begingroup$ I understood it like in this way. Is it correct? "If we are using a roller type lever for the limit switch, it will be pushed forward when the piston moves forward and it will remain in that position until the piston returns to its original position" $\endgroup$ – Anna Clarke Oct 11 '15 at 2:03
  • $\begingroup$ What does the documentation say? Can you just call the manufacturer and ask an engineer? $\endgroup$ – GisMofx Oct 11 '15 at 5:33
  • $\begingroup$ @GisMofx This is included in a tutorial and it is not explained in it. If it's a roller type is my assumption correct? $\endgroup$ – Anna Clarke Oct 11 '15 at 6:54
  • $\begingroup$ From the diagram, it looks to me like limit switch one will only be engaged when the piston is retracted, and limit switch 2 will be engaged when the piston is fully extended. When the piston is anywhere in between 1 and 2, i would expect neither limit switch to be activated. $\endgroup$ – Ethan48 Oct 11 '15 at 15:43
