Contact Pressure Gauges
Contact pressure gauges are used whenever it is necessary to monitor limit values and visually indicate local process pressures. They are basically pressure gauges with an integrated pressure switch. Depending on the pointer position of the indicating measuring instrument, switch contacts make or break circuits. The contacts can be used to trigger an alarm if a reading exceeds or falls below a set value; this is why they are also "alarm contacts". The contact pressure gauge can also be used to start, stop, or switch processes.
