The pressure switches have been developed especially for safety-critical applications with limited space.
The high quality of the products and manufacturing in accordance with ISO 9001 ensure reliable monitoring of your plant. In production, the switches are traced by quality assurance software at every step and subsequently are 100 % tested.

The robust switch enclosure from aluminium alloy or stainless steel 316L can withstand the rough and corrosive operating conditions of the process industry with working ranges of up to 1,000 bar. The access to the terminal block for the electrical connection is protected by a screw-on lid, which is secured with a screw-type lock against unauthorised intervention.

A microswitch integrated in the instrument enables the direct switching of an electrical load of up to AC 250 V, 15 A.

Depending on the application, the appropriate variant for the contact version and the electrical connection can be selected; e.g., hermetically sealed microswitches are suitable for corrosive ambient conditions and DPDT contact versions for two separate circuits.

By using a diaphragm element with antagonist spring as sensor element, the model PCA pressure switch is extremely robust and guarantees optimal operating characteristics.

For safety applications, the pressure switch is optionally available in a SIL 2-qualified or a SIL 3-qualified version.
