Frequently Asked Questions About Pressure Switches

Q: What is a pressure switch used for?

They are used in a wide range of industrial and residential applications such as HVAC systems, well pumps, furnaces, etc. A pressure switch monitors the system's fluid pressure and either opens or closes an electrical connection based on a preset pressure level. Some common applications of pressure switches include compressor pressure switches, air pressure switches and water pressure switches.

Q: How do pressure switches work?

When the inlet pressure force is greater than the springs pre-tensioned force, it switches the electrical contact. A Normally Closed (NC) contact will open, and a Normally Open (NO) contact will close. Once the pressure reduces, the contacts will return to their normal state.

Q: How do I choose a pressure switch?

We have a list of general attributes we look out for when customers inquire about our pressure sensors:

Maximum pressure; adjustment range; the medium it is being used for; process connection thread & type; normally open, normally closed or SPDT; electrical connection; voltage & current handling requirements.

Q: What is the difference between a pressure switch and a pressure sensor/transmitter?

Pressure switches operate electrical switches at a preset pressure level, while pressure sensors read the system pressure and convert it into an electrical signal.
