The Ashcroft 2265 electric warning contact expands the capabilities of select models of gauges and thermometers by enabling direct control and monitoring of process systems. The 2265 is used to turn on a signal light, sound an alarm, or operate a pump or valve.
The contacts can be set so that a circuit can be closed or opened at a desired pressure or temperature. Contacts are equipped with adjustable magnets to eliminate chatter caused by vibration. Contact adjustment is made externally with a removable key to make the instrument virtually tamper proof. Changes to the contact's settings can easily be made in the field without removing the instrument from service. A plug-in connector with five feet of electrical cable is standard.
The contact is designed for easy installation on Types 1279, 1377 and 1379 Duragauge pressure gauges (either stem or flush mounted), Type 1125 differential pressure gauges, or Type 600A Duratemp dial thermometers.
