Features Two switch model Independent switch adjustment no tools needed Two conduit cable entrances Separate isolated wiring chambers Non corrosive pressure connection Solid metal enclosure document contains important information on the installation operation of PS15 pressure switches Please read all instructions before beginning installation A copy of this document is by NFPA 72 to be maintained on site Potter PS15 Series Supervisory Pressure Actuated Switches are primarily to detect an increase and or decrease from normal pressure in automatic fire sprinkler systems Typical applications air nitrogen supervision in dry pipe and pre action systems pressure air supplies and water supplies The PS15 2 has two switches Low switch is factory set to activate at approximately 0,69 BAR psi on a decrease in pressure The High switch is factory set to at approximately 1,4 BAR 20 psi on an increase in pressure 72 requires a supervisory signal for both high and low pressure See section heading Adjustments and Testing if other than set point is required Connect the PS15 to the system side of any shutoff or check valve Apply Teflon tape to the threaded male connection on the device Device should be mounted in the upright position Threaded not use pipe dope down Tighten the device using a wrench on the flats on the device Specifications 3.20 Dx10,7cm 4.22 H 0,07 at 0,69 BAR 1 lb at 10

carefully place a on the edge of the knockout and sharply apply a force to dislodge the knockout plug See Fig 9 Run wires through an approved conduit connector and affix connector to the device A NEMA 4 rated conduit fitting is for outdoor use Connect the wires to the appropriate terminal connections for the intended See Figures 2,4,5,6 and 8 and Testing Testing the PS15 may activate other system connected devices operation of the pressure supervisory switch should be tested upon of installation and periodically thereafter in accordance with applicable local national and NFPA codes and standards and or the having jurisdiction manufacturer recommends quarterly or frequently use of a Potter BVL see product bulletin 5400799 for details recommended to facilitate setting and testing of the PS15 pressure When a BVL bleeder valve is used the pressure to the switch be isolated and bled from the exhaust port on the BVL without the supervisory pressure of the entire system See Fig 3 operation point of the PS15 Pressure Switch can be adjusted to any between 0,69 2,07 BAR 5 and 30 PSI by turning the adjustment clockwise to raise the actuation point and counter clockwise lower the actuation point In the case of the PS15 2 both switches independent of each other Each switch may be independently to actuate at any point across the switch adjustment range If the needs to be adjusted from the factory settings adjust the system to the desired trip point Use an ohmmeter on the appropriate COM and 2 for pressure decrease and COM and 1 for pressure Adjust the knurled knob until the meter changes state At that the switch is set for that particular pressure Final adjustments be verified with a pressure gauge position of the top of the adjustment knob across to the printed on the switch bracket can be used to provide an approximate visual of the pressure switch setting 1 Terminal Connections Plate Terminal 2 uninsulated section of a single conductor should not be looped the terminal and serve as two separate connections The must be severed thereby providing supervision of the in the event that the wire becomes dislodged from the terminal Sprinkler
