Omega debuts PSW8 modular pressure switches
By Alyssa Dalton
May 10, 2015 – Omega’s modular series general purpose pressure switches offer a proven design for stationary or mobile hydraulic applications, says the company. Applications include factory automation, balers, compactors, overload controls, machine tools and hydraulic power pack applications. The PSW8 series is available in a range of configurations. Low pressure ranges feature a diaphragm pressure switch design, while higher pressure ranges feature a compact piston design. A SPDT micro switch will change state on increasing pressure at a set-point, and will reset when the pressure decreases back below the set-point by the amount of the deadband.
