Pressure switches, specifically gas pressure switches, function in a way in which they are able to close an electrical contacts when a specific pressure has been reached. Depending on your application and desire, these gas pressure switches are able to make contact if the pressure rises too high or falls too low. These gas pressure switches are similar to the pressure switches that are in place in commercial buildings, however these pressure switches are activated by a mechanical force, such as the weight of someone walking over them, in order to close the electrical contact that opens an automatic door. Gas pressure switches can be found in a number of industries and applications in order to prevent hazardous situations and damage to the overall process or application.
There are few different examples of gas pressure switches, one of the more common uses is in applications where gas compressors are present. A lot of these gas pressure switches function so that they switch off once a certain gas pressure is achieved within the gas reservoir or they will switch off when there is no more need to feed gas into the suction stage. Another common application for these gas pressure switches is found in airplanes, where the switch will toggle an alarm light indicating that the pressure within the cabin is at a dangerous level. Another often overlooked application to find gas pressure switches in is inside air hoses that are used to count traffic. As the vehicle passes over the hose, the air pressure builds up and activates the pressure switch. Pressure switches are used a wide range of other applications that deal with other substances other than gas so it's important to know what type of application you have and the proper gas pressure switch that goes along with that application.
