The Model VSG is a flexible vane type of waterfl ow switch for use in wet pipe water mist systems where a low flow for alarm is required. It is designed for installation in sections of 2 to 4 inch (50mm to 100mm) stainless steel or brass pipe with wall thickness in accordance with the above specifi cations (see "Nominal OD and Wall Thickness").

The unit may also be used as a sectional waterflow detector on largesystems.

The unit contains an output relay and an adjustable electronic retard. The relay is actuated when a flow of 3 gallons per minute (11.4 LPM) or more occurs downstream of the device. The flow condition must exist for a period of time necessary to overcome the selected retard period.

The unit is enclosed in a general purpose, die-cast housing. The cover is held in place with two tamper resistant screws which require a special key for removal. A fi eld installable cover tamper switch is available as an option which may be used to indicate unauthorized removal of the cover.
