Pressure switch is used to turn on/off when specified pressure is reached. It consists of a pressure port and bellows. When pressure is applied, bellows expand and actuate the snap action switch against return spring force. Differential setting allows setting of cut-in and cut- out pressure setting i.e. hysteresis setting. This prevents chattering of pressure switch contacts.
