These sensitive single pole switches can be used as pressure or vacuum switches, or as differential pressure switches.
SPECIFICATIONS Approvals: UL recognized, CSA certified Temperature: -30 to 65°C(-23 to 149°F) Setpoint Accuracy: ±10% of setting at 70°F Note: Pressure settings may change over the temperature range. Materials of Construction Body: Acetal Diaphragm: EPDM bonded to steel ring Contacts: Gold plated silver Springs: Plated Phospher Bronze Terminals: Plated Copper or Brass Pressure Connection: Spout for 1/8 ID tubing Adjusting Screw: Stainless Steel or Zinc Plated Steel. Setting as shipped, 2 inches of H2O negligible deadband Media: Clean dry non-corrosive gases only. Note: The pressure media entering through Port A is in direct contact with the electrical contacts in the switch. The media entering through Port B is separated from the electrical contacts by the diaphragm. Weight: 9 g (0.3 oz)
Pressure Switching Normally Open Contacts
Connect the pressure source to Inlet Port B and set the adjusting screw to the desired pressure setpoint. Turning the screw clockwise narrows the gap between contacts and decreases the setpoint. Turning the screw counterclockwise increases the gap, increasing the setpoint. Note that the media entering through Port B is separated from the electrical contacts by the diaphragm. Pressure Switching Normally Closed Contacts
Connect the pressure source to PortA and monitor continuity across the terminals. Slowly turn the adjusting screw clockwise, narrowing the gap between the contacts until the contacts are closed. Apply the setpoint pressure which will open the contacts. Continue to turn the adjusting screw clockwise until the contacts make and break at the desired setpoint. Vacuum Switching:
Repeat above using Port A for Normally Open contacts and Port B for Normally Closed Contacts.
