    In the words of Dan Holohan

    "It Depends" :) Cowie, There are many different types of pressure switches. Water Pressure, Air Pressure , Normally open and Normally closed.

    Tell us what's on you mind and I'm sure the many sharp folks here will give you tons of knowledgeable responses.

    Your friend in the industry,

    A pressure switch

    is a contraption (AKA a device) that is sensitive to pressure. When it detects that pressure, it either opens or closes a set of electrical contacts that allows another contraption to turn on or shut off.

    The quick answer... :-) Kca
