New 2-Pin Deutsch Pressure Switch For Tough Environments

Riverdale, NJ, July 22, 2016 – Sigma-Netics Inc. has added a 2-pin Deutsch connector option to its 784 Series of ruggedized pressure switches. The 2-pin option allows the 784 Series to serve a wider range of applications, including those with limited installation space.

Originally available with just a 3-pin Deutsch, the 784 pressure switch is compliant with IP67 standards for maximum environmental protection. This model thrives in tough environments containing oil, fuel, water, dust, vibration or shock. It’s a piston-based design with an 8 to 6,000 psig range.

In addition, the customizable pressure switch features a snap-action electrical switch tested to one million cycles, gold contact switches for dry circuit applications, high overpressure capabilities and custom configurations.

Technical advantages include:

  • A temperature range from -40 to 250°F
  • 303 stainless steel hydraulic module housing
  • Nitrile o-ring, fluorocarbon and ethylene propylene
  • UL certification
  • A NEMA Type 4 rating
  • Integral pressure port snubbing

With a temperature range from -40 to 250°F, the 784 pressure switch comes with a piston, fixed pressure, integral pressure port snubbing and an 8 to 6,000 psig range. Some common applications include:

  • Off-road equipment
  • Industrial OEM equipment
  • Train braking systems
  • Packaging equipment
  • Compactors
  • Compressors

Other Features. This customizable pressure switch also features a snap-action electrical switch tested to one million cycles, gold contact switches for dry circuit applications, high overpressure capabilities and custom configurations. In addition, this model meets UL safety standards and NEMA type 4 outdoor applications and instances where water is present.
