Honeywell high-pressure switches from Aerco are ideal for a wide range of tough applications

AE546 Honeywell HPS switches from AercoThe Honeywell HPS Series of high-pressure switches, available in the UK from Aerco, is a range of durable and highly reliable pressure on/off switches.  Environmentally sealed to IP67 they are ideal for use in rugged applications that require the making or breaking of an electrical connection in response to a pressure change.

With a life cycle rating of up to 2 million, a proof-pressure rating of 10,000psi and burst-pressure of 20,000psi, these high performance switches are ideal for transportation systems, heavy-duty construction and agricultural machinery, CNC machines, fracking equipment, presses and punches and any other industrial machinery that uses high pressure hydraulic fluids.  In addition, a wide selection of pressure ports and electrical terminations provide the capability to configure the switch to meet specific applications.

The operating temperature range of -40°C to 120°C makes them ideal for use in rugged outdoor applications while the pressure switching-point range of 150 to 4,500psi, a ±2% switching point accuracy and 5mA to 5A switching capability make them a sure choice for a wide range of applications from heavy loads to those connected to an electronic control unit.

The Honeywell HPS Series can be configured with either single-pole, single-throw (SPST) normally open or normally closed, or single pole, double throw (SPDT) circuitry.
