having jurisdiction to follow these directions may result in failure of the to report an alarm condition System Sensor is not for devices that have been improperly installed or maintained device is designed to be mounted in the upright or position side mounting is also acceptable it where vibration shock and mechanical load are minimal Refer to piping diagram Figure 2 on 2 1 Pressure switch

Table 2 switch settings may be adjusted in the field to ob a different pressure alarm response from 4 PSI to 20 The switch has an override feature on the adjustment to prevent exceeding the 20 PSI max setting of switch This override feature carries with it a tolerance that may limit the upper adjustment to 16 PSI must be used when setting the switch to ensure that lower limit of 4 PSI is not exceeded This will allow the to reset within the 3 PSI differential stated Install pressure switch as stated in of instruction manual Attach pressure test to system Back off locking screw see Figure 1 to allow main ad wheel to rotate freely Test trip point by slowly introducing pressure from the test source When trip point is found reduce to zero Rotate main adjustment wheel coun to increase pressure and retest until switch point is at the desired pressure setting 4 PSI Each number represents an approximate trip change of 0.2 PSI One full rotation changes the point setting by approximately 2.5 PSI A reset dif of approximately 3 PSI is typical throughout the adjustment range of switch Retest the set point several times to ensure accuracy of Re seat locking screw The sensor assembly is not field replaceable Do attempt to disassemble these parts If you have questions consult System Sensor System Sen recommends careful consideration of the fol factors when specifying and installing Pressure Switches Always refer to the In and Maintenance Instruction for specific on individual devices before in the unit Electrical ratings stated in literature and on name should not be exceeded Overload on switch can cause failure on the first Always wire devices according to national and electrical codes Install units away from shock and vibration Proper fittings should be used to prevent moisture entering the enclosure via the conduit Test all devices for proper operation after initial instal Perform preventive maintenance and periodic as required by the applicable NFPA standards not less than bi monthly Install a back up control for all critical applications control failure could endanger life or property backup control to serve as a high or low limit con is especially recommended for applications where runaway condition could result 2 SETTINGS PSI Do not mount unit where ambient temperatures will Switch Switch 8 8 PSI Diff PSI Diff published limits Avoid impact or mechanical loading Manuals Online Limited Warranty Sensor warrants its enclosed pressure switch to be free from de in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for a of three
