Contacts Gauges

MGA Controls Ltd are technical experts in a wide range of Contacts Gauges. These high performance pressure instruments contain a pressure measurement element, and either one or two electrical contacts which provide extra functionality.

A contacts gauge operates in a slightly different way to a normal pressure gauge, in that when the pressure exceeds or drops below a pre-determined set point it activates the electrical or inductive contact. Upon the contact being activated, it can perform a number of functions, normally either ‘make on rise’ or ‘break on rise.’

The signal can then be communicated with other instruments to perform additional functions. E.g. Shutting off a pump when the pressure exceeds a pre-set maximum value.

MGA Controls Ltd supply and stock a comprehensive range of Electrical Contacts Gauges for safe and hazardous area applications. Their contacts are either of the ‘sliding,’ ‘snap-on’ or ‘inductive’ variety, the latter are suitable for use in ATEX Intrinsically Safe environments.
