Expanding the company's pressure switch portfolio, Honeywell Sensing and Control have announced the HP series, HE series and LE series. These IP67 rated pressure switches provide high burst pressure ranges as well as a long life cycle rating, enhancing durability and reliability.

Operating over a temperature range from -40 to +120°C, the pressure switches include IP67 sealing to improve durability and prevent water ingress from causing the switch to fail. Additionally, the switches feature a comprehensive selection of ports, electrical terminations and compatibility with a variety of media. This enables use in most customer applications, simplifying the design-in process, eliminating tooling costs and reducing manufacturing and labour costs.

Suitable for use in a wide variety of applications in the industrial and transportation industries, the electromechanical gauge pressure on/off switches are available with either single pole single throw normally open or normally closed circuitry, or single pole double throw circuitry.

Often installed into challenging applications with wide operating ranges and specific switching requirements, the Honeywell pressure switches feature high burst pressure and up to 2m life cycle ratings. Enabling switch to operate and survive in demanding applications and ensure long life and reliable switching, these features can also help to protect critical systems, reduce OEM warranty costs and end-user downtime. Pressure switches are also often exposed to harsh environmental conditions and washing applications which can result in damaging water ingress, so Honeywell's pressure switches are IP67 rated.

Wade Wessels, Global Product Marketing Manager, Honeywell Sensing and Control, commented: “Honeywell’s platform design allows us to quickly adapt to our customers’ unique needs. This results in customers receiving product samples within two weeks of ordering, and within four weeks for production units. Additionally, this expanded modular portfolio reduces total cost of ownership and helps to protect operators and critical equipment subsystems.”
