  • Factory New
Brand: Potter FireAlarm.com Part #: 72308 Categories: , , Manufacturer Part #: RBVS


The Model RBVS is designed to monitor the fully open or closed position of a ball valve installed in a sprinkler system as well as monitor the position of a coil on a solenoid for a preaction/deluge system. The unit will fit on most ball valves installed on back-flow-preventers and alarm trim lines of dry, alarm, and deluge sprinkler valves. The switch operates if the ball valve handle is moved from the normal position. However, the switch does not track the position of the handle or ball. When the ball valve handle is under the RBVS plunger, a spring-loaded actuator will contact the valve handle. When the handle is moved from the position, this actuator extends to the tripped position, and the RBVS contacts change state, thereby opening or closing a circuit. The unit also includes a small “L” bracket and “V” clamp to allow the RBVS to mount directly to the nipple on the coil of a solenoid valve. The plunger of the RBVS is actuated by the stud protruding through the center of the coil, see Fig. 6. If a technician removes the coil from the solenoid for testing, the RBVS will activate.
