Dwyer Series 1640 Floating Contact Null Switch for High and Low Actuation

Floating Contact Null Switch for High and Low Actuation
Series 1640

The unique electric switch design in the 1640 is another Dwyer Instruments, Inc. innovation. The Dwyer® Model 1640 Differential Pressure Switch resembles the Series 1630 switches described on the previous page. The Model 1640, however, is equipped with a single pole, double throw floating contact switch (not snap acting) so it functions as a null switch.

Drawing shows the switching action schematically. As the diaphragm moves in response to pressure changes, it moves the floating contact to cause switching action at two preset points with no switching action between these points. The “high” circuit will be closed when rising pressure differential reaches the preset level. The “low” circuit will be closed when falling pressure differential reaches the preset level.
