The Model AFS-145 is a general purpose proving switch designed for package burner, furnace, fuel-burning equipment, HVAC and other Energy anagement applications. It may be used to sense positive, negative, or differential air pressure.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
The plated housing contains a diaphragm, a calibration spring and a snap-acting SPDT switch.The sample connections located on each side of the diaphragm accept ⅛” pipe. An enclosure cover guards against accidental contact with the live switch terminal screws and the set point adjusting screw. The enclosure cover will accept a ½” conduit connection.
MOUNTING (Fig. 1)
Select a mounting location which is free from vibration. The AFS-145 must be mounted with the diaphragm in any vertical plane in order to obtain the lowest specified operating set point. Avoid mounting with the sample line connections in the “up” position. Surface mount via the two ³⁄16″ diameter holes in the integral mounting bracket. The mounting holes are 3-⅞” apart.
AIR SAMPLING CONNECTION (Fig. 2)
The AFS-145 is equipped with two ⅛”–27 NPT female connectors. For sample lines of up to 10 feet, ⅛” pipe is acceptable. For lines up to 20 feet, use ¼” pipe. For lines up to 60 feet, use ½” pipe. For each right angle bend, add 4 feet to the computed sample line length to determine correct pipe size. Locate the sampling probe a minimum of 1-½ duct diameters downstream from the air source. Install the sampling probe as close to the center of the airstream as possible. Refer to Figure 2 to identify the high pressure inlet (H) and the low pressure inlet (L). Select one of the five application options listed below and connect the sample lines as recommended.
POSITIVE PRESSURE ONLY: Connect the sample line to inlet H; inlet L remains open to the atmosphere.
NEGATIVE PRESSURE ONLY: Connect the sample line to inlet L; inlet H remains open to the atmosphere.
TWO NEGATIVE SAMPLES: Connect the higher negative sample to inlet L. Connect the lower negative sample to inlet H.
TWO POSITIVE SAMPLES: Connect the higher positive sample to inlet H. Connect the lower positive sample to inlet L.
ONE POSITIVE AND ONE NEGATIVE SAMPLE: Connect the positive sample to inlet H. Connect the negative sample to inlet L.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION (Fig . 3)
Before pressure is applied to the diaphragm, the switch contacts will be in the deactivated position as shown in Figure 3.
The snap switch has screw top terminals with cup washers. Wire alarm and control applications as shown in Figure 4.
The adjustment range of an AFS-145 Air Switch is 0.05 ±.02″ w.c. to 12.0″ w.c. To adjust the set point, turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise until motion has stopped.
Next, turn the adjusting screw 4 complete turns in a clockwise direction to engage the spring. From this point, the next ten turns will be used for the actual calibration. Each full turn represents approximately 1.2″ w.c.
Please note: To properly calibrate an air switch, a digital manometer or other measuring device should be used to confirm the actual set point.
Mount with the diaphragm in any vertical plane.
Set Point Range:
0.05 ± 0.02″ w.c. to 12.0″w.c. (1.27 mm w.c. ± 0.508 mm w.c to 304.8 mm w.c.) (0 to 0.43 psi).
Field Adjustable “Operate Range”:
0.07″ w.c. (1.78 mm w.c.) to 12.0″ w.c. (304.8 mm w.c.).

Approximate Switching Differential:
Progressive, increasing from 0.02 ± 0.01″w.c. (0.508 mm w.c. ± 0.254 mm w.c.) at minimum set point to approximately 0.8″ w.c. (20.3 mm w.c.) at maximum set point.
