VS2 (20700042) : Shock & Vibration Switch
The VS2 Series switches are shock sensitive mechanisms for shutdown of engine or electric motor powered equipment. These adjustable magnetic shock switches have a wide range and use a magnetic latch to ensure reliable operation.
Ideal for use on engines, pumps, compressors, heat exchangers and pumping units - the VS2 can be used anywhere shutdown protection from damaging shock/vibration is desired. Switches are field adjustable to sensitivity required in each application. MurCal can provide a certificate of conformance for the VS2.
Pushing the reset button moves the tripping latch into a magnetically held position. A shock/vibration will move the magnet beyond this holding position, freeing the spring loaded tripping latch to transfer the contacts and shut down the machinery (see dimensional diagrams or visual representation of parts.)
