12 Series Overview
Vibration-resistant, 316 stainless steel Pressure, Differential Pressure and Temperature Switches
12 Series hazardous location switches are ideal for operation in tough applications where space is at a premium. A snap-action Belleville spring assembly is used to provide vibration resistance and prolonged switch life. The 316 stainless steel enclosure and hermetically sealed switch provide rugged protection from the environment. Approved for use in hazardous locations worldwide, the 12 Series is installed within applications ranging from offshore oil rigs to rotating equipment, and more.
Now available with stainless steel accessories (e.g. junction box)
