The Potter Model VSR-S is a vane type waterflow switch for use on wet sprinkler systems that use 1" (25mm), 1-1/4" (32mm), 1-1/2" (38mm) or 2" (50mm) pipe size. The unit may also be used as a sectional waterflow detector on large systems. The unit contains two single pole double throw snap action switches and an adjustable, instantly recycling pneumatic retard. The switches are actuated when a flow of 10 gallons per minute (38 LPM) or more occurs downstream of the device. The flow condition must exist for a period of time necessary to overcome the selected retard period.
The Model VS-SP is a vane type waterflow switch for use on wet sprinkler systems. These devices may be used as sectional flow indicators on large sprinkler systems and on smaller sprinkler systems such as mobile homes and residential dwellings. The VS-SP does not have a retard to prevent false alarms due to water surges. Therefore it should NOT be used on systems with variable water pressure supplies except in the case of elevator recall.
