Metrix mechanical vibration switch is designed to meet all requirements in a single, affordable package. It provides vibration protection for low to medium speed machinery. An inertia sensitive mechanism activates a snap-action switch with SPDT output contacts if the vibration exceeds an adjustable setpoint. The 5550 mechanical vibration switch contacts can be used to activate an alarm or initiate equipment shutdown. The housing is weatherproof with an optional hazardous area rating. Electrical (remote) reset with start-up time delay and a second set of SPDT output contacts to accommodate DPDT needs (e.g. separate trip and trip light circuits) are available.
The 5550G uses identical internal mechanisms, but carries an IECEX rating ideal for IIC gas group applications.
