The W0168 and W0241 panel kits are universal-fit instrument panels for most industrial engines. They include Swichgage protection for low engine oil pressure and high coolant or high oil temperature. These Panel Kits are similar–the W0168 has a start/stop key switch and the W0241 has a start push button.

Panel kits include:

  • Low Lube Oil Pressure Swichgage instrument.
  • High Coolant/Oil Temperature Swichgage.
  • 518PH Magnetic Switch.
  • Emergency stop push button.
  • Ignition key switch for start/stop (W0168).
  • Push button for start (W0241).
  • Ammeter 60-0-60.
  • Provisions for additional Swichgage controls, such as irrigation pump pressure or engine oil temperature.
  • Provisions for tachometer and throttle cable.

Swichgage product is two-instruments-inone: (1) an accurate indicating gage with (2) a built-in, adjustable limit switch.

A 518PH Magnetic Switch provides a Closed-loop circuit to ensure proper operation at all times. The 518PH allows the system to be sensitive to open circuits, broken wires, false grounds, corrosion, loss of power and other factors which could otherwise prevent the protective controls from operating. It can be wired to either make or break a circuit for shutdown.

The universal mounting panel is enclosed on all 4 sides with open back. An optional back cover (model no. 30050800) is available for both kits. Panel Kits are prewired and ready to install and are available for 12 or 24 VDC systems.*

 

L150 Series Level Swichgage

The L150 Series Level Swichgage instrument is a combination liquid level gauge and low limit switch; each unit includes a chamber with pivotal float, an indicating dial with pointer and a low level contact.

When properly installed and maintained, the float operates the pointer which, in turn, both indicates level during normal operation, and closes a switching circuit if the level falls to the low-limit set point.

 

L129 Series Lube Level Swichgage

The L129 Series Lube Level Swichgage is a combination lube level indicating gage and adjustable low and high limit switches. It provides protection against low oil level or high level caused by overfill or fuel or water seepage into the crankcase.

A 6-3/4 inch (171 mm) deep sight gauge allows you check the condition and level ofyour oil without shutting down the equipment. Fingertip adjustable limit contacts, thru 4-7/8 inch (122 mm) range, make it simple to set high and low limit contacts. If the float touches the high or low limit contact, a normally open circuit will be completed which can activate alarms and/or shutdown the equipment.

 

20P & 25P Series Pressure Swichgage

The 20 Series (2 inch/51 mm dial) and the 25 Series (2-1/2 inch/64 mm dial) Swichgage® models are diaphragm-actuated, pressure-indicating gages, with built-in electrical switches. These switches are used for tripping alarms and/or shutdown devices. 

Features:

  • Combination indicating gage and limit switch
  • Critical pressure limit switch is visible and adjustable (most models)
  • Switch can activate alarms and/or shutdown equipment
  • Exceeds SAE standards

 

20T & 25T Series Temperature Swichgage

The 20 Series (2 inch/51 mm dial) and the 25 Series (2-1/2 inch/64 mm dial) Swichgage models are diaphragm-actuated, temperature-indicating gages, with built-in electrical switches for tripping alarms and/or shutdown devices.

Features:

  • Combination indicating gage and limit switch
  • Critical/high temperature limit switch is visible and adjustable (most models)
  • Switch can activate alarms and/or shut down equipment
  • Contact grounds through case

 

Tattletale Annunciators and Magnetic Switches

Tattletale® annunciators and Magnetic Switches are the nerve centers that translate Swichgage® contact operations into decisions and operate the alarm or shutdown device. They are the electrical load carrying devices for the alarm or shutdown device. Tattletale® annunciators indicate which monitored function failed leading to the alarm or shutdown whereas magnetic switches do not. Magnetic switches operate basically as a latching relay.

 

ST Series

The ST Series Selectronic® Tattletale® annunciators are a simple and inexpensive answer to your remote alarm annunciator needs. Basic models ST5AS and ST10AS are general purpose alarms suitable for a variety of applications. Model ST8 gives first out annunciation of fault. Model STA16 is designed for generator set applications and can be configured to meet NFPA requirements for standby generators.
