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 d
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.
