Danfoss Saginomiya FQS Flow Switches

APPLICATION, BENEFITS AND MAIN FEATURES
The FQS flow switches are of the paddle type for general fluid line applica-
tions.

The SPDT contact mechanism makes or breaks an electric circuit when flow
starts or stops. The FQS flow switch can be used for any fluid compatible with
copper alloy materials, which are the parts of the switch which come into con-
tact with the fluid.

The electrical contact block is completely sealed from the fluid.

The paddle consists of three segments that can be removed or trimmed and
fixed to the switch for use in pipes from 1” to 6” in diameter. The standard pad-
dles are made of copper alloy. Stainless steel paddles are also available.
