Rail Pressure Switches

We have a range of pressure switches designed to meet the stringent requirements of the rail industry.


21D Pressure Switch

 

The IMI Norgren 21D electro mechanical all-fluid pressure switch has been designed to monitor pressure levels in a variety of rail system applications, such as rail vehicle brakes, pantographs, compressor control, shoe gear, air suspension, horn operation and many others.

The 21D is manufactured from carefully selected high-performance materials, including gold plated or silver plated switch contacts, which address varying accuracy and current draw ratings up to 10A, as well as hard wearing silicone for the diaphragm – to maximise performance and component life-span.

The 21D has an IP65 rating to EN 60529 to maintain the integrity of the system against contamination or damage from fluids and solids. It also offers a high number of switching cycles, with optimum accuracy and repeatability of +3% of the final pressure value which is maintained over the whole life of the product.

The modular design allows for different mounting options and electrical interfaces as well as a wide choice of single pole and double pole switching logics. The micro switches used provide a long life, high accuracy and have been approved by UL/CSA.
