FS-480 – Series Flow Switch
The FS-480 large-body inline flow switch delivers ample flow rates with minimal pressure drop. 25% larger than its FS-380 sibling, the FS-480 is ideal for processes that push more fluid through their systems and demand low pressure drops. Designed to accommodate the Semiconductor Industry’s move to larger 300 mm wafer and cross-over equipment, this switch is also perfect for critical medical equipment applications. A glass-reinforced PPS piston and forged 316 stainless steel body make this sensor rugged enough for high pressure lubrication and cooling systems as well. This simple, yet meticulously perfected design provides the reliability required in critical applications while allowing for much lower pressure drop rates than other available switches.
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.
