Wherever the process pressure has to be indicated locally, and, at the same time, circuits are to be made or broken, the Model 232.50/30 switchGAUGE can be used. Switch contacts (electrical alarm contacts) make or break an electric control circuit dependent upon the position of the instrument pointer. The switch contacts are adjustable over the full extent of the scale range (see DIN 16 085), and are mounted predominantly below the dial, though also partly on top of the dial. The instrument pointer (actual value pointer) moves freely across the entire scale range, independent of the setting. The set pointer can be adjusted using a detachable adjustment key in the window.
Switch contacts consisting of several contacts can also be set to a single setpoint. Contact actuation is made when the actual value pointer travels beyond or below the desired set value.
