Abstract : Tests were performed on four limit switches to determine the effects of pressure differentials on their operating characteristics. Each switch was subjected to low pressure environments of 10 psia, 5 psia, and 0.1 psia, and to high pressure environments of 20 psia, 25 psia, and 30 psia. The actuation and reset forces were measured before and after the low and high pressure environments. (Author)
