Presair air switch products create a safe switching mechanism where water, fire or other hazardous material may be present, such as a kitchen. Commonly used for garbage disposals, the air switch turns equipment on/off with the push of a button or other air bellow.
How it Works
The Presair air switch is joined by tubing from the air bellow, when pressed sends a pulse of air to the switch actuating the micro switch to control the equipment. The air bellow can be located anywhere within 100ft of the unit that is being controlled. Because the air bellow is isolated from the electrical current, when operated the user will not experience shock if hazardous material is present, such as water on a kitchen counter top.
The switch can be hard wired to control any equipment such as a garbage disposal, overhead sink light or even outdoor tools! Presair also offers an electric to pneumatic air switch converter box. This converts electrical equipment or an appliance to a device controlled by the shockproof air button by plugging the equipment into a receptacle box which contains an air switch, which in turns plugs into a stand electrical outlet.
