Pressure Switches

About our Pressure Switches

Pressure switches and sensors are essential components in a wide range of industrial and manufacturing applications. These devices provide vital electrical feedback in response to changes in pressure, enabling the precise monitoring and control of pressure-based systems.

At Applications Engineering, we offer a vast selection of high-quality pressure switches and sensors to meet the diverse needs of our customers. Our products are designed to perform reliably in a variety of demanding environments, from water pumps and compressors to aircraft cabin pressure systems and battery charge control.

How Do Pressure Switches Work?

Pressure switches, also known as pressure sensors, utilise fluid pressure within a chamber to activate a physical mechanism that opens or closes electrical contacts. This triggers the connected apparatus, such as a pump or alarm system. The pressure point at which the switch is activated is pre-set during manufacturing and cannot be adjusted.

In contrast, electronic pressure switches use electronic signals to trigger the switch. These devices often provide a secondary signal to continuously monitor the pressure within the designated chamber. The actuation points can be adjusted as needed via an interface on the device, along with other functionalities.

Applications of Pressure Switches and Sensors

Our pressure switches and sensors are widely used across a large range of industrial and manufacturing applications, including water pumps, gas compressors, battery charge control, aircraft cabin pressure systems, and more. They can be designed to respond to various types of fluid pressure, such as pneumatic or hydraulic.

We offer a diverse product range, from simple single pole single throw switches to more advanced single pole double throw models, to best suit the specific requirements of our customers.
