- What is a pressure switch?
Pressure switches, or pressure sensors, are used to provide electrical feedback in response to a chamber either rising or falling to a pre‑determined pressure level being reached.
- Where are pressure switches used?
Our products are used in a wide range of industrial and manufacturing applications, such as:
- Well water pumps
- Electronic gas compressors
- In-cell charge control inside a battery
- Activating an alarm if aircraft cabin pressure drops
- Pressure panels on sliding doors
- Switching high currents, e.g., pumps and drives
- What switches do you supply?
We supply a vast range of switches that can be used in a number of areas:
- Water pumps
- How do pressure switches work?
Mechanical pressure switches use fluid pressure inside a chamber to activate a physical mechanism,
which triggers two contacts within the switch device, either opening or closing the connected apparatus. The pressure point is pre-set as part of factory manufacture, and cannot be adjusted
Electronic pressure switches will use electronic signals to trigger the switch, and often provide a secondary signal to monitor the pressure within the designated chamber. Switch actuation points are often determined during factory manufacture, but can be adjusted as required via an interface on the device, along with other functionalities.
