Features One or two switch models available Independent switch adjustment on two switch models no tools Two 1 2 conduit cable entrances Separate isolated wiring chambers Non corrosive pressure connection Non Conductive Enclosure VdS version available Available with Nylon or Brass pressure connection Nylon shown in picture document contains important information on the installation operation of PS40 pressure switches Please read all instructions before beginning installation A copy of this document is by NFPA 72 to be maintained on site Potter PS40 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 PS40 1 has one switch and factory set to activate at approximately 30 psi 2,1 bar on a decrease pressure The PS40 2 has two switches The Low switch is factory set activate at approximately 30 psi 2,1 bar on a decrease in pressure High switch is factory set to activate at approximately 50 psi 3,5 on an increase in pressure NFPA 72 requires a supervisory signal the pressure increases or decreases by 10 psi from normal The PS40 factory set for a normal air pressure of 40 psi See section heading and Testing if other than factory set point is required Connect the PS40 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 Entrances Ratings Tamper Adjustment System Connection Range Use knockouts for 1 2 conduit provided

Sprinkler Applications 3 SUPERVISORY PRESSURE SWITCH LINE PIPE Y 924 1A of any shutoff valves between the alarm check valve the PS10 will render the PS10 inoperative To comply with IFC and NFPA 13 any such valve shall be electrically su with a supervisory switch such as Potter Model RBVS Instructions Remove the tamper resistant screw with the special key provided it is necessary to remove the sealed knockouts 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 service intended See Figures 2,4,5 and 6 See Fig 7 for two one conduit wiring and Testing Testing the PS40 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 PS40 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 PS40 Pressure Switch can be adjusted to any between 10 and 60 psi 0,7 4,11 bar by turning the adjustment clockwise to raise the actuation point and counter clockwise lower the actuation point In the case of the PS40 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 NPT To prevent leakage apply Teflon tape sealant to
