A breakthrough in Sensata Technologies pressure sensing technology enables direct line break capability in applications that have been traditionally controlled in pilot duty circuits by contacters or relays.

The 46PS pressure switch is capable of breaking 2 amp loads at 480 Vac for 2.5 million cycles (requires Sensata/customer specification closure and validation testing before application approval). It is ideal for cycling condenser fan motors to maintain an acceptable condensing pressure during low ambient temperature conditions.

In applications such as split room air conditioning systems, the 46PS as a head pressure control can result in significant cost savings when used instead of a pilot duty switch and relay. Other potential uses include fluid pressure sensing in commercial and industrial applications.
