Electronic pressure switch

Type MEP is the latest electronic pressure switch for off-highway equipment from Danfoss. The switch is suited for use in safety applications, including control of stabilizer legs as well as bucket and tilt control. The series is offered as dual- or single-switch output, and both versions can be supplied with a pulse-snubber to protect the sensor element in applications where cavitation, liquid hammer, and pressure peaks can occur. The MEP switch offers improved long-term stability with zero drift, overpressure ability, as well as burst pressure and features no mechanical parts, a reliable design, and accurate functionality.
