EPS40-1 and EPS40-2 Supervisory Pressure Switches
- Sensitivity adjustment wheel, no special tools required
- Reinforced diaphram resists pressure spikes
- Two conduit entrances provided
- NEMA 4 rated
System Sensor EPS40 Series switches are designed for use in dry pipe systems or pressure tanks and water pressure supplies of automatic water control valves. The EPS40-1 has a single SPDT switch while the EPS40-2 model contains two SPDT switches.
The EPS40 Series features field adjustable pressure sensitivity to provide an alarm response between 10 and 100 psi. All models are factory set for use in a nominal 40 psi system. The EPS40-1 is factory set to respond at 30 psi at decreasing pressure while the EPS40-2 is factory set to respond at 50 psi on rising pressure and 30 psi at decreasing pressure. The pressure adjustment wheel requires no special tools and does not affect switch synchronization on the EPS40-2..
