Product Description Package Contents
More than just a switch with wires, the block is a CNC-machined and powder-coated 6061 aluminum housing with a sealed, high-strength switch and two sealed 2.5mm TRS jacks for connectivity and daisy-chaining. The entire block is then potted using high-strength resin for long life and reliability in even the harshest of conditions and abuse. Any number of blocks may be connected to a single input device through the use of the daisy-chained ports.

This single switch can be used for many applications. Attached to the Stage Zero cart and wired to the MX2 it can be used as a limit switch to shut the system down when it reaches the end of the track. It can also be used to trigger stop motion animation allowing the user to tap the button once to take a shot and advance to the next position, or as a remote to start two dollies at the exact same time. For more information on using external switches see the MX3 documentation: Using Remote Inputs. When connected to the MX2 on the Ext 1 port, the switch shows up as I/O line #1.

The limit switches replace the stabilizer bar on the Stage Zero, the stabilizer is not required for most applications. For the Stage One, you must also order the Stage One Limit Switch Stops to use the Limit Switch Kit.
