The PSP-400 consists of the following principal components:
- Strong aluminum alloy enclosure
- Polysilicon pressure sensor with self-diagnostic capability
- Evaluation unit with microprocessor
- Relays with floating contacts for signaling limit violations
- LED status display
- Plug-in connectors (Phoenix Combicon)
- RJ-45 data output
- Aluminum alloy pressure connection
Before the device is put into service, the desired hydraulic limits are set with a PC or notebook computer. During operation the polysilicon sensor of the PSP-400 continuously measures the hydraulic pressure in the connected system. The current measured values are output by way of the RJ-45 interface. Limit violations activate the floating NC/NO contacts (relays) and trigger the relevant signal. In addition, LEDs on the unit display the current status (green LED: normal operation, red LED: limit violation). The output measured values and signals facilitate precise control of the hydraulic pump and the reliable activation of lockouts and alarms in case of a malfunction.
High operating reliability is ensured by the sensor’s self-diagnostic capability and an additional relay for error messages. The set limit values are retained even in the event of a power failure. The electronic pressure switch is designed for a service life of > 30 years. It is impossible for an undefined condition to arise at the relay outputs in case of a malfunction of the sensor, evaluation unit (microprocessor, memory, A/D converter, DC-DC converter etc.), or output device (relays). Apart from monitoring the hydraulic operating mechanisms of high-voltage circuit breakers, the PSP-400 is also suitable for other hydraulic pressure applications.
