The Model 685A07 mechanical vibration switch provides an economical solution for continuous vibration monitoring. It comes standard with an external push-button reset and does not require power to operate. The switch uses a spring-loaded, magnetically coupled sensor, which can be externally adjusted for higher or lower sensitivity. The technology is particularly effective on cooling towers, fans, small motors or pumps, or any installation requiring immediate shutdown when increased vibration levels are present. The mechanical vibration switch is a cost-effective approach for a first line of defense against catastrophic machinery failure. CSA-certified explosionproof versions with identical features are also available. IMI Sensors Division of PCB Piezotronics, www.imi-sensors.com
