Vacuum switches

FIPA vacuum switches for the control and monitoring of vacuum systems are available in electromechanical, pneumatic and electronic models with analogue and digital outputs and display.

Electromechanical vacuum switches emit an electrical signal when the set vacuum level is reached.

Pneumatic vacuum switches are advantageous in handling systems in which no electrical control or supply lines are available. They emit a compressed air impulse once the threshold value is reached.

Electronic vacuum switches are prized for their flexible usability and particularly high switching and repeat accuracy. Models with analogue output enable the monitoring of the continuous sequence of the vacuum level.

Electronic vacuum switches with analogue and digital outputs and electronic vacuum switches with two digital outputs and display allow high flexibility for the design of automation systems and handling systems.


For 20.020, 20.021 and 20.022 series electronic vacuum switches, the switching points and hysteresis are set using buttons. The 20.021 and 20.022 models have an LED display for controlling the set limit values.


Need even more flexibility for your application? Then the 20.035 and 20.036 series with “electronic vacuum switches with two digital outputs and analogue output” are the right solution for you. Different upper and lower limit values can be programmed for each digital output and the system vacuum is monitored continuously via the analogue output. The settings are easy to control using the 3-digit display.
