Pressure Switches

Posted on May 9, 2013

Danfoss has introduced an electronic pressure switch designed to meet the specific demands of hydraulic applications in off-road equipment. The MEP electronic pressure switch is available in single and dual switch versions that offer customized hysteresis, as well as protection against short circuits, incorrect wiring and overloading, the company said. Both versions can also be supplied with a pulse-snubber to protect the sensor in applications exposed to cavitation, liquid hammer and pressure peaks.

Both PNP and NPN switching outputs are available with the MEP switch and the company said it offers electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection. The fully welded design is engineered to withstand high pressures and temperatures and is available with a wide range of pressure and electrical connections, Danfoss said.
