IMI Sensors launches a New Series of Mechanical Vibration Switches with Remote Reset Options

Patent pending design innovation provides better control over trip sensitivity

IMI Sensors, manufacturer of industrial vibration monitoring instrumentation, announced the launch of the new series of mechanical vibration switches, Models 685A09, 685A19, 685A29, 685A39. The new models feature a unique, patent-pending design that provides a much better sensitivity adjustment than the traditional designs.

IMI has developed this new Linear Adjust Mechanical Vibration Switch series for use in various applications such as cooling towers, fin fans, large exhaust and vent fans, HVAC systems, blowers and motors.

The new mechanical vibration switch has a significant technical advantage. The unique design provides much better sensitivity adjustment than traditional designs, which allows a user to better control the trip level in the switch and improve protection of their equipment (refer to test to the right). Additionally, due to the design and manufacturing processes used to build the switch, it is more cost competitive than any of the existing mechanical vibration switches on the market.

Some of the other benefits include low cost protection for critical machinery, better sensitivity repeatability on reset, DPDT relay, 10 amp dry contacts and120, 240 VAC or 24 VDC options.
