The Model VSR-SG is a vane type waterflow switch for use on wet sprinkler systems using CPVC plastic fittings (manufactured by Tyco, Nibco, Victaulic, Ipex, and Spears Manufacturing Company) that use 1", 1 ¼", 1 ½", or 2" pipe sizes. It is equipped with a union to accommodate installation in confined spaces.
The VSR-SG contains two single pole, double throw, snap action switches and an adjustable, instantly recycling pneumatic retard. The switches are actuated when a flow of 10 GPM (38 LPM) or more occurs downstream of the switch. The flow condition must exist for a period of time necessary to overcome the selected retard period.
The VSR-SG switches and retard switch are 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 field installable cover tamper switch is available as an option which may be used to indicate unauthorized removal of the cover.
