New flow switch ranges from Cynergy3

UK-based flow sensor and liquid level manufacturer Cynergy3 Components has extended its range of flow switches to cater for larger diameter pipes and higher flow rates.

In addition to inline flow switches, the range now includes paddle type flow switches including a new stainless steel version.

Inline and paddle type flow switches are suitable for installation in both small and large size diameter pipes. The flow switches can be used to control pumps, valves and other control equipment in a variety of industrial processes.

The FSH range of paddle type flow switches includes two series, the FSH10AR and FSHPLC.

The FSH10AR series is a general purpose paddle flow switch for loads up to 4A inductive. The switch can be used to control a pump, valve or process via a relay output, ideal for controlling a circulating or centrifugal electric pump that is providing increased pressure or flow within water systems with storage tanks.

Pipe connection is via a G1” (1” BSP) thread suitable for mounting to pipe sizes G1”, G2”, G3” and G4”. The device relies on the flow of liquid working in opposition to the spring-loaded paddle to operate the relay.

The FSHPLC series works in a similar way to the FSH10AR series, but provides a signal level, volt-free contact for output to a PLC - also suitable for pipe sizes G1” to G4”.

Both series’ are constructed in reinforced polyamide with brass screw mounts and are protected to IP54. Maximum pressure is 10 bar and maximum operating temperature is 100°C.

The LFS series of paddle flow switches have a stainless steel paddle and a IP65 aluminium alloy housing or DIN 43650 connection. These switches are suitable for flow detection in harsh operating environments, where the pipe media is aggressive/corrosive.

LFS flow switches can be installed in 1” to 3” bore pipes. Maximum operating pressure is 20 bar and operating temperature range is -30°C to +150°C.
