Klixon’s 36PS pressure switch features a number of design and process considerations that ensure accurate, reliable performance in low pressure, dry circuit applications. The all–metal construction of our hermetically sealed "free disc" pressure sensor provides a stable, long life.

Lacking elastomers, the 36PS is compatible with most fluids. Its unique packaging affords repeatable pressure sensing through a wide temperature range and protects against contaminants including dust, oil, salt, and water.

A statistically controlled and capable process ensures the performance and quality you expect from Sensata. Typical applications include low engine oil, brake, transmission and fuel pressure sensing.
