What does Snap action indicate on limit switch contacts.

Snap action contacts move repidly to open or closed position and are relatively independent of cam speed. Because of shorter arcing times, snap acting contacts have longer contact life then slow acting make and break contacts and should be used where slow moving cams are encountered or where good repeat accuracy is required.
