Amot Controls Introduces New Sensing Switches — Literature Available

Amot Controls of Richmond, Calif., has announced the availability of a new family of pressure and temperature sensing switches, the 8250 Series, designed specifically for application on vibrating equipment. These rugged switches have adjustable set points and are constructed with a union that allows installation in tight places where interference does not permit rotating the switch body. Seven models are available to cover pressures from 0.25 to 7,600 psi, vacuum from 1 to 20 inches of mercury, differential pressures from 0.5 to 10 psi, and temperatures from 61 to 500 F.

In addition, an eutectic alloy temperature switch is available for sensing bearing temperatures from 174 to 343 F. Applications also include fluid and gas temperature sensing when used in a well.

These devices feature permanent calibration, and no periodic checking is required.

The entire 8250 Series switch family features raintight housings and is applicable to engine and compressor controls for monitoring such parameters as low oil pressure, high jacket water temperature, high or low compressor suction or discharge pressure, high gas compressor discharge temperature, low engine water pump differential pressure, fluid levels, etc.
