Danfoss Type KPS

The Danfoss KPS units are pressure-controlled switches. The position of the contacts depends on the pressure in the inlet connection and the set scale value.

In this series, special attention has been given to meeting important demands for:
  • a high level of enclosure,
  • robust and compact construction,
  • resistance to shock and vibration.
The KPS series covers most outdoor as well as indoor application requirements. KPS pressure switches are suitable for use in alarm and regulation systems in factories, diesel plant, compressors, power stations and on board ship. Approvals - EN 60 947-4-1 and EN 60 947-5-1 Ship Approvals - American Bureau of Shipping; Germanischer Lloyd, Germany Bureau Veritas, France. Includes thermostats with fixed sensor and pressure controls with armoured capillary tube.

Terminology

Range setting - The pressure range within which the unit will give a signal (contact changeover). Differential - The difference between make pressure and break pressure (see pdf). Permissible overpressure - The highest permanent or recurring pressure the unit can be loaded with. Max. test pressure - The highest pressure the unit may be subjected to when, for example, testing the system for leakage. Therefore, this pressure must not occur as a recurring system pressure. Min. bursting pressure - The pressure which the pressure-sensitive element will withstand without leaking.
