The Maxton Hydraulic Elevator Low Pressure Switch (PSNO-2) has been tested specifically for hydraulic elevator applications to comply with ASME 17.1/CSA B44. The switch has been pre-set for a fast and accurate response in a low-pressure activation and can be mounted directly to all Maxton UC series control valves.
ASME A17.1-2010 Rule 3.26.8 - When cylinders are installed with the top of the cylinder above the top of the storage tank, a pressure switch shall be activated by the loss of positive pressure at the top of the cylinder.
