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
