Honeywell Pressure Switches Operate in Harsh Environments
Minneapolis, Minn. — Honeywell has added three new series to its pressure switch portfolio: the HP Series, HE Series and LE Series. The pressure switches from Honeywell Sensing and Control provide high burst pressure ranges, a long life cycle rating and IP67 sealing for higher durability and reliability. Applications include a variety of industrial and transportation (such as heavy-duty construction and agricultural machinery) industries.
The high burst pressure and up to 2 million life cycle ratings allow the pressure switches to operate and survive in demanding applications and ensure long life and reliable switching, said Honeywell. In addition to helping protect critical systems, these sensors also reduce OEM warranty costs and end-user downtime. Pressure switches may also be exposed to harsh environmental conditions and washing applications, which can result in damaging water ingress. These pressure switches include IP67 sealing to improve durability and prevent water ingress from causing the switch to fail.
The pressure switches provide a wide temperature range of -40°C to 120°C [-40 °F to 248 °F], and accuracy of up to ±2%. The electromechanical gauge pressure on/off switches are available with either single pole/single throw normally open or normally closed circuitry, or single pole/double throw circuitry.
“Honeywell’s platform design allows us to quickly adapt to our customers’ unique needs,” said Wade Wessels, global product marketing manager, in a statement. “This results in customers receiving product samples within two weeks of ordering, and within four weeks for production units. Additionally, this expanded modular portfolio reduces total cost of ownership and helps to protect operators and critical equipment subsystems.”
The pressure switches are available in a variety of ports, electrical terminations and compatibility with a variety of media, which helps simplify the design-in process, eliminating tooling costs and reducing manufacturing and labor costs, said Honeywell.
