Variohm EuroSensor is increasing its range of pressure, vacuum and differential switches. This is a result of the recent acquisition by its USA distribution partner, World Magnetics Incorporated, of two specialist pressure switch manufacturers to complement the existing DesignFlex range. The new product lines from Value Engineered Products Inc and Henry G Dietz Co Inc combine to make Variohm's range of standard and custom designed pressure switches one of the largest available from a UK source; Variohm now offers cost-competitive pressure, vacuum and differential switches for applications as broad as medical equipment to agricultural machinery, and from food processing machinery to aerospace.
The DesignFlex range includes ultra-sensitive pressure, vacuum and differential pressure switches with a wide variety of housing, mounting, porting, diaphragm and set point configurations covering a pressure range from 0.1inch H20 to 50inch H20 (0.25 to 125mbar). Application-specific features on certain models include field-adjustable set point, controllable hysteresis (deadband), factory-calibrated versions for tamperproof use and full military specification versions. The range is characterised by an exceptionally long working life and extremely high reliability.
Value Engineered Products manufactures fluid-actuated switches for sensing vacuum, differential, and dual differential pressures. With fluid types that cover hydraulic oils, ethylene glycols, aircraft fuels, freon, lubricating oils, water, air and many more, the range includes diaphragm elements for sensing low pressures down to 0.5 inch Hg, and piston elements for high-pressure applications for pressures up to 2650PSIG.
Dietz air pressure switches are aimed at heavy industrial and extreme environmental uses. With a range of 0.05inch to 40inch H2O, the 170D model is an ultra-low-differential pressure switch for applications such as trains, ships and construction equipment where shock and vibration resistance is of paramount importance. Dietz also produces an ultra-sensitive pressure switch for extreme environment forced air systems, filters, blowers and exhaust fans.
Variohm offers a complete design consultancy service across these new products, providing customers with specialist technical support from application concept through to supply and after-sales support.
