Pressure switches

Series PP7 pressure switches can provide single- or dual-switch outputs, programmable N.O. or N.C. operation, and PNP or NPN polarity. The switches also feature adjustable hysteresis, a programmable time delay, and a programmable damping function to eliminate false trips on pressure surges. A push button can be used to program the switching setpoints and N.O./N.C. output function. Setpoint accuracy is better than 1.5% of range with repeatability of better than 1% of range.
