Solon Explosion-Proof Pressure Switches provide extra safety, security, and protection where fire and explosion safety is critical. The pressure switches' explosion-proof construction provides harsh environment advanced heavy-duty protection, while the switches' compressed design allows for an unassuming integration into customized systems of equipment. Solon's explosion-proof series employs a cast aluminum housing that is both explosion-proof and weather-tight.
- Designed for most low-vacuum applications
- Explosion-proof cast-aluminum housing
- Frictionless switching mechanism, which amplifies the movement of the switching element, resulting in improved life, repeatability, and lower deadbands
- Accommodates up to four full-size SPDT electric switches, which are available in a variety of configurations, including adjustable deadband, DPDT, high/low operation, & manual reset
- Switch configurations can be supplied with low deadband, high direct current ratings, gold contacts, hermetically-sealed contacts
- Standard vacuum-sensing element constructed of aluminum alloy using a strong Buna-N elastomer diaphragm (other diaphragms and wetted materials are available)
Reliability & Performance
Solon's Explosion-Proof Pressure Switches are suitable for numerous types of potentially hazardous applications. These types of security and safety issues can include safety panels with pump and gas compressors, turbines, or other types of similar applicable circumstances. Explosion-proof pressure switches are also designed for hazardous locations where an explosion-proof switch is required.
Solon Pressure Switches are unique due to their frictionless switching mechanism, which amplifies the movement of the switching element, resulting in improved life, repeatability, and lower deadbands.
Unlike most "inline" pressure switch designs, the frictionless Solon mechanism amplifies the movement of the sensing element.
