Example Trip Point Configuration
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Fans are used across a wide variety of machinery in a multitude of industries. Cooling, drying, material transportation, and chemical processing are just a few of the many applications. To keep systems and processes running smoothly, engineers integrate airflow switches into their industrial automation to detect when fans are not moving enough air. Where fans […]

Flow switch for WWTP upgrade
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Do you need to upgrade ventilation for your primary clarifiers? WWTPs (Wastewater Treatment Plants) keep water safe and protect our environment. For control of the toxic and corrosive gases released during wastewater treatment, as well as reliable equipment operation, effective ventilation is needed. Engineers specify the S-Series (S300/S400/S500) probe-style flow switch to monitor ventilation airflow, […]

Air velocity switch S-Series in duct
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Radar arrays are used in aerospace and defense industries to search, detect, and track aircraft and missiles. A phased array radar consists of a grid of antenna elements, each with a phase shifter. Power from the transmitter is fed to the radiating elements through the phase shifters which are controlled by a computer system. As […]

S100 adjustable air velocity switch
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

The S100 is a digital switch, used to detect proper airflow. With user-adjustable set point, the S100 responds to air velocity. It is a cost-effective way to detect a change in velocity or loss of airflow due to a closed damper, malfunctioning fan, clogged filter, or obstructed air inlet/outlet. The S100 adjustable air velocity switch […]

Configurable Air Velocity and Temperature Switch, HVAC Duct
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Configurable air velocity and temperature switch with advanced output capability generates an alarm signal to safeguard systems and environments. Degree Controls S-Series air velocity and temperature switches generate alarms when airflow exceeds a calibrated setpoint, activate devices in response to airflow, and protect equipment from being energized.  Robust, versatile S-Series switches are a logical choice […]

switches verify airflow
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Packaging/converting machines use air velocity switches to monitor airflow and achieve higher product yields. Packaging machines package wet or dry product using flexible materials such as paper, foil, and plastic film to create containers which are sealed using heat or pressure. Packages used for pharmaceutical, medical, and personal care products include bags, pouches, blister packs, […]

Air velocity and temperature switch to monitor reflow oven airflow
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Reflow oven air velocity Reflow ovens are used for reflow soldering of surface mount electronic components to printed circuit boards (pcbs). Forced convection reflow ovens typically consist of multiple zones, individually regulated, to provide precise thermal profiles. Several heating zones may be followed by one or more cooling zones. Airflow has a significant impact on […]

S100 vs sail switch
Posted By: Alex Sargent

S100 switch proves airflow & air velocity trip point is user-adjustable! The S100 air velocity switch is a reliable, cost-effective way to monitor airflow.  It signals for low flow with choice of NO or NC relay output whenever air velocity falls below the user defined trip point.  The S100 trip point is easily set via […]
