Agency Approvals:


  • Magnetically actuated switching design gives superior performance
  • Features a free-swinging vane which attracts a magnet within the solid metal switch body, actuating a snap switch by means of a simple lever arm with no bellows, springs, or seals to fail

Product Literature


Catalog Pages




What does actuation and de-actuation mean?
Actuation means that the flow rate has reached a point where the microswitch trips or the contacts of the microswitch change state. De-actuation means that the flow rate has decreased to a point where the microswitch returns to its normal state.
What material is used as a seal between the process fluid and the electrical portion of the switch?
The body material; as there is no separate "seal" since the body is machined from solid stock and the switch is magnetically actuated.
On your Flow Switches, which model has a Form C type contact
Form C contact is a SPDT snap switch. Many of Dwyer’s flow switches have SPDT snap switches. The V4, V6, V7, FS-2, and V8 are some of them.
