The 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 suitable 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 suitable 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.

An operating temperature range of -40degC to 120degC makes them suitable for use in rugged outdoor applications, while the pressure switching-point range of 150 to 4500psi, a +/-2 per cent 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. For further information please visit
