PCB Piezotronics has introduced a new Smart Vibration Switch. the company says Model 686BO1 is fully user-programmable, competitively priced and can be used to replace most popular mechanical vibration switches.

The device requires just two wires for operation, which eliminates the need to run additional cables and, with Remote Reset Anywhere, climbing a cooling tower to reset a tripod is no longer necessary.

The switch is also said to provide a low cost solution for many electronic vibration switch applications requiring a single relay.

The Smart Vibration Switch includes an embedded piezoelectric accelerometer for accurate vibration measurement and monitors velocity.

It operates from a universal power source (24 to 240VAC or VDC), has programmable delays to avoid false trips, is hermetically sealed and can be used in hazardous locations.
