AST20SW Solid State Pressure Switch

AST20SW Solid State Pressure Switch

The Model 20SW is a solid state stainless steel pressure switch designed for use in a variety of applications. Applying digital compensation, this product offers top performance over a wide temperature range. Utilizing Krystal Bond Technology™, the sensing element will measure pressure in the most extreme temperature conditions. Where other sensor technologies will freeze or boil, the AST20SW uses a one piece stainless steel sensor to offer continuous operation. If linearity and repeatability are critical for your application, this product will exceed your expectations at an affordable price.
