The SERIES CX Compressor Pressure Switches are designed with a 20 amp
normally closed DPST switch for direct control of pumps and motors. The set point
and deadband are both easily adjustable via screw terminals inside the cover. For
ease of installation, the switches come with a 1/4˝ female NPT process connection or
the optional 4-port connection block on the CX-4 models. Besides making installation
easier, one of the other ports can be used to install a pressure gage. Plus, these
switches can be mounted in any orientation.
These units can be found regulating tank pressure on small air compressors. The
CX series switches come with an unloader valve, which prevents compressors from
starting under load. They also come with an auto/off disconnect lever for manually
cutting off the load. When the lever is in the off position, there is a test button inside the
housing that can be pushed to turn on the load.

MAINTENANCE
Upon final installation of the Series CX Low Cost Pressure Switch, no routine
maintenance is required. A periodic check of the system calibration is recommended.
The Series CX is not field serviceable and should be returned if repair is needed
(field repair should not be attempted and may void warranty). Be sure to include a
brief description of the problem plus any relevant application notes. Contact customer
service to receive a return good authorization number before shipping.
