Presair mechanical vacuum switches make electrical contact when a certain set vacuum has been reached on its input.
Our mechanical vacuum switches are available in multiple styles including adjustable vacuum switches or fixed set point vacuum.
By providing on/off switching from a pneumatic source, Presair vacuum switches deliver critical benefits:
- Safe and Convenient: Remote operation with complete electrical isolation. UL Recognized.
- Economical: Costs less than conventional controls
- Accurate: Highly stable with good repeat accuracy. All switches are 100% tested at high and low settings and at proof vacuum.
- Reliable: Minimal moisture absorption and maximal dimensional stability.

Tinytrol vacuum switches provide versatile and convenient sensing. Their miniature size and variety of connection styles for simple implementation into any system. These switches allow for simple electrical on/off control over vacuum. As negative pressure rises or falls, one contact opens as the other closes. This provides a perfect solution for monitoring, controlling, and notifying. Vacuum switch is factory set. Adaptor available to enable Tinytrol® retrofit for certain competitors’ models with small diameter mounting thread.

Presair’s sensitive single pole switches can be adapted to vacuum switches (from .25 IN.W.G. to 45 IN.W.G.) or as differential pressure switches.
These “slow make, slow break” switches can respond to rapid pulsing and the gold plated silver contacts will handle low level switching currents. Optional adjustable air bleeds can be supplied on either side of the diaphragm for pulse-sensing application safe edges or bellows.
Rating: 750 ma @ 250 VAC to 5 ma @ 3 VDC; 1 AMP @ 250 VAC to 5 ma @ 3 VDC. UL Recognized for 100,000 operations.
Materials: Acetal body; EPDM diaphragm bonded to steel ring; other diaphragm materials are available; gold plated silver contacts; silver plated bronze springs; silver plated copper or brass terminals.
