RS Pro Mercury Tilt Switch

Made from a sturdy ABS material, this mercury tilt switch from our own high-quality RS Pro brand allows for the efficient opening and closing of circuits.

By using liquid metal mercury, the electrical switch contacts within the tilt switch are effectively switched On-Off when the switch is tilted in the appropriate direction. The operating temperature range of between -20°C and +70°C means that these high-quality tilt switches can be used in a vast range of applications.

The mercury switch is suitable for applications which include light tilt control, alarm systems, power tilt safety and consumer tilt applications.

Features and Benefits

Prewired with 300mm of 2 core PVC cable Low power tilt safety
Case material: ABS
Operating temperature: -20°C to +70°C
A maximum differential angle of 10°
Maximum switching voltage of 240 V ac

Mercury Tilt, Vibration & Movement

Glass and metal bodied versions offer bounce-free switching and quick break action even when tilted slowly. Contacts make and break with vibration motion and return to the open state at rest. Unless otherwise stated, the angle by which the switch must be tilted to ensure contact operation (operating angle), must be approximately 1.5 to 2 times the stated differential angle. The differential angle is the measure from the “just closed” position to the “just open” position. Inert gas and hermetic sealing protects contacts

Warning

  • Mercury is a toxic substance. Do not cut open or incinerate these devices. Dispose of safely in accordance with prescribed practice and local regulations.
