IMI Sensors debuts Mechanical Vibration Switch for Machine Shutdown Protection on Cooling Towers, Fans, Pumps & Motors

The new Model 685A07 Mechanical Vibration Switch from the IMI Sensors Division of PCB Piezotronics (PCB®) provides an economical solution for continuous vibration monitoring. It comes standard with an external pushbutton reset, and does not require power to operate.

The switch uses a spring loaded, magnetically coupled sensor which can be externally adjusted for higher or lower sensitivity. This technology is particularly effective on cooling towers, fans, small motors or pumps, or any installation which requires immediate shutdown when increased vibration levels are present.

Model 685A07 is a cost-effective approach for a first line of defense against catastrophic machinery failure. CSA certified explosion-proof versions with identical features are also available.
