Gems Sensors Introduces New Flow Switches

Gems Sensors & Controls are launching the FS-480 series flow switches having a 3/4”port size. These switches are intended for monitoring the higher flow rates of fluid system with the help of low pressure drop This switch would help fluid pressures up to 1000 PSI (68.95 bar).

As this switch is bigger (by 25%) than the FS-380 series, it is perfect for operations that thrust more fluid into the system, and require low pressure drop. Higher switch set points [0.50 to 3.00 GPM (1.9 to 11.4 LPM)] are also a part of higher flow rates.

FS-480 series flow switches

Currently, the Semiconductor Industry’s focus is on crossover equipment and larger wafers, the FS-480, which is actually a 316 stainless steel switch with a glass strengthened PPS piston , is ideal for applications using critical medical equipment , which makes this sensor robust, for usage in lubricating and cooling systems, where pressures up to 1000 PSI have to be endured. Its aligned design, is able to tolerate granular particles, and is less prone to sticking, when compared to the other designs. Moreover the FS-480 can be fixed at any height.

The FS-480 is not only available with ¾” NPT ports, but also with others such as the1/2” tube end compression fitting connection ports and ½” ports. The set point accuracy level is ±20% maximum, having a 20% maximum set point differential. The temperatures under which it can function are between -20°F and +250°F (-28.8°C to +121°C). This airtight, magnet-triggered SPST reed switch has a rating of 20VA, and an electrical termination Number of 22 AWG leads.

Established in the year 1955, Gems Sensors supplies several OEM companies globally, pioneering solutions, with its diminutive solenoid valves, innovative sensors and widespread expertise and customer-centric systems, and is also certified by UL, CE, ISO 9001 and ISO13485.
