Series 1831 pressure switch.
One of our most popular differential pressure switches is now available
with a DPDT switch. The 1831 combines small size with 4% set point
repeatability. Absolutely no power is required to operate the DPDT
switch. Set point adjustment on the switch is easily accessible for
modifying the set point. A mounting bracket is included for simplified
installation.
MANUAL RESET OPERATION - ACTIVATE ON INCREASE
Models with “manual reset” are DPDT configuration and operate as
follows: If differential pressure increases above the set-point, the snap
switch is actuated or latched so N.O. contacts are closed and N.C.
contacts are open. They will remain in that condition even if differential
pressure decreases below the set-point until manually deactuated by
reset lever.
SET POINT THRESHOLD CHECk:
The reset lever can act as a test feature during system installation or
maintenance, even if set point threshold is not exceeded. A periodic
lever override is recommended to ensure proper switch performance.
Pushing the lever to the right (when viewed from the cover side of the
switch with the ports pointed down) will cause the switch to change state,
simulating a condition in which the set point threshold has been
exceeded. The lever then must be manually reset, pushing the lever to
the left to deactuate the switches to complete the override procedure.
CAUTION: If the switch set point threshold has been
exceeded and the lever is in the tripped position on the right,
the lever can be moved to the left position and manually held
by the user, overriding the alarm condition as long as the
user holds it there. If the switch set point threshold is still
exceeded and the operator releases the reset lever, it will
pull back to the tripped position on the right and remain in
that location until the set point has dropped below the set
point threshold and the user resets the lever normally.

INSTALLATION
Mounting
1. Select a location free from excessive vibration and where oil or water
will not drip upon the switch. See special housings for unusual
conditions.
2. While not required, positioning the pressure connections down
is recommended. Mount the switch with the diaphragm in a vertical
plane. Switch must be recalibrated for each change in operating
position.

Connecting to Process
3. Connect switch to source of pressure differential. Metal tubing with
1/4" O.D. is recommended but any tubing system which will not
restrict the air flow is satisfactory. Note that the low pressure
connection may be made to the 1/2" spud at the back of the switch if
desired. If so connected, drill 1/16" diameter holes in the Spring
Retainer flange and the head of Adjustment Screw to provide opening
to the switch interior and plug the other low pressure connection.
Wiring
4. Electrical connections to the snap switches are provided by means of
terminal block marked "common", "norm open", and "norm closed".
See Figure 1. The normally open contacts close and the normally
closed contacts open when pressure increases beyond the set point.
For failsafe applications, it is recommended to use N.C. contact
wiring. Use 14-30 AWG copper wire rated 194°F (90°C) min.
CAUTION: Power must be off while wiring connections are
being made.
CAUTION: Do not exceed the specified voltage rating.
Permanent damage not covered by the warranty may result.
5. Switch loads should not exceed the maximum specified current rating
of 4 amps resistive on standard models. Switch capabilities decrease
with high load inductance or rapid cycle rates. Whenever an
application involves one or more of these factors, the user may find it
desirable to limit the switched current to 3 amps or less in the interest
of prolonged switch life.

ADjUSTMENT
1. If the switch has been factory preset, check the set-point before
placing in service to assure it has not shifted in transit.
2. If switching has not been preset or it is desired to change the point,
observe the following procedure:
a. To adjust the set point turn the slotted Adjustment Screw
clockwise to increase the set point and counterclockwise to
decrease the set point.
b. The following is a recommended procedure for calibrating or
checking calibration: Use a "T" assembly with three rubber tubing
leads, all as short as possible and the entire assembly offering
minimum flow restriction. Run one lead to the pressure switch,
another to a manometer of known accuracy and appropriate
range, and apply pressure through the third tube. Make final
approach to the set point slowly. Note the manometer and
pressure switch will have different response characteristics due to
different internal volumes, lengths of tubing, oil drainage, etc. Be
certain switch is checked in position it will assume in use, i.e.
vertical, horizontal, etc.
MAINTENANCE
Upon final installation of the Series 1831 Low DPDT Differential
Pressure Switch, no routine maintenance is required. A periodic check of
product performance is recommended. Check by applying pressure to
activate the switches. Ensure the reset level properly resets both
switches after the set point threshold has been withdrawn. The Series
1831 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 goods authorization
number before shipping.
