Flow Switch – FS-107E Adjustable Type Available with Visual Indication
The FS-107E model flow switch operates in any mounting position. It is equipped with a calibrated piston in a calibrated orifice for viscosity compensation over 1 to 600 cSt. The piston is displaced by flow to magnetically actuate a sealed hermetic reed switch. When flow decreases a positive spring returns the piston to its prior position and de-actuates the reed switch. The reed switch assembly is movable to allow for customer setting of flow rate within the limits of the switch selected. The adjustment does not effect the flow path, therefore pressure drop is not influenced when changing set-points. Robust components allow a pressure of 250 bar, ideally suited for high pressure lubrication systems.
When the magnetic field of permanent magnet inside the shuttle or piston is moved into the proximity of the reed switch inside the stationary stem, the reed switch contacts “snap” together and closes the electrical circuit. When the magnetic field is moved away from the reed switch, the reed switch contacts move apart and the circuit is opened.
