    APPLICATION
    The Model DDP-109 is a general purpose proving switch designed for HVAC and Energy Management applications. The DDP-109 provides dual switching action: two separately-operated, independently-adjustable SPDT snap-acting switches are mounted on a common foot bracket. Differential pressures up to 2 inches w.c. can be measured. Because the two snap switches are set independently, an adjustable “deadband” can be established for control circuits requiring both high and low actuation points. Many control and alarm functions are possible: for instance, monitor two pressure sources and sense the differential for actuation at two independent set points.

    GENERAL DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
    Each of the two plated housings contains a diaphragm, a calibration spring and a snap-acting SPDT switch. There are two low pressure sample connections (one for each switch assembly), and a common high pressure sample connection (located on the foot bracket between the two low pressure connections). All three sample connections accept ¼” OD metallic tubing via integral compression ferrule and nut fittings. An enclosure cover is provided for
    each switch assembly to guard against accidental contact with the live switch terminal screws and the set point adjusting screws. The enclosure covers accept a ½” conduit connection.

    MOUNTING
    Select a mounting location which is free from vibration. The DDP-109 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 7” apart.

    AIR SAMPLING CONNECTION
    The DDP-109 is designed to accept firm-wall sample lines of ¼” OD tubing by means of ferrule and nut compression connections. For sample lines of up to 10 feet, ¼” OD tubing is acceptable. For lines up to 20 feet, use ¼” ID tubing. For lines up to 60 feet, use ½” ID tubing. Adapters, suitable for slip-on flexible tubing are available: refer to Bulletin AFSFS 08.01. Locate the sampling probe a minimum of 1.5 duct diameters downstream from the air source. Install the
    sampling probe as close to the center of the airstream as possible. Refer to the dimensions drawing to identify the common high pressure inlet “H” and the two low pressure inlets “L” (on Element A and Element B). For each element, select one of the following options 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 ample to inlet L.

    ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
    For each element, before pressure is applied to the diaphragm, the switch contacts will be in the normally closed (NC) position.The snap switch has crew-type terminals with cup washers. For each element, wire alarm and control applications as shown in Figure 1.

    FIELD ADJUSTMENT
    The adjustment range of each of the 2 elements of the DDP 109 Air Switch is 0.05 ±.02” w.c. to 2.0” w.c.. To adjust an element’s 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 0.2” 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.
