1- Product Overview

The OSS2 supervisory switch serves to monitor the open position
of the OS&Y gate valve, with two available sizes, one for OS&Y
gate valve size 2″~16″(DN50~DN400) and one for OS&Y gate
valve size 18″ ~24″(DN450~DN600).
While the OS&Y gate valve is opening, the groove on the stem
rises accordingly. When it rises to the position of the trip rod, the
trip rod falls into the groove, trigger off the tamper switch and
deliver out signal

Description

3- Features

  • Double micro switch design

Double micro switch design reduces the risk of false signal delivery caused by tamper switch malfunction. Meanwhile, multi-signal transmission can meet different requirement of more customers.

  • Adjustable screw design

With accurate adjustment supported by the adjustable screw, the two tamper switches

can be triggered synchronously. It is convenient to do micro-adjustment after installation on the OS&Y gate valve.

  • IP Grade: IP65

Dust proof and water proof, good guarantee for the inner structure safety.

a) Installation

Step 1: Operate OS&Y gate valve to the fully open position, set the trip rod across the yoke as far as possible from the valve gland to make sure that it shall be sitting against the un-threaded part of the valve stem.
Step 2: Install the supervisory switch together with the carriage rod and fixing bracket. Step 3: Loosen the locking screw, adjust the length of the trip rod, make sure it sits at the right position where the trip rod should be exceeding the valve stem but not touching the mounting plate. Tighten the locking crew and fix the trip rod.

  3. Groove of Stem
  4. Trip Rod
  5. Fixing Bracket
Note
In case the trip rod is too long, loosen the locking screw to remove the trip rod. Cut off the notched section (1 inch), and install the trip rod again by repeating step 3.
If there’s a pre-machined groove on the stem to mounting the supervisory switch, proceed with step 6 directly. If there is no pre- machined groove on the stem, proceed with step 4 and 5.

Step 4: Mark the valve stem at the center of the trip rod.
Step 5: Remove the supervisory device and then file a 1/8″deep groove centered on the mark on the valve stem with a 3/8″diameter straight file. Round and smooth the edges of the groove to prevent damage to the valve packing and to make sure that the trip rod can move easily in and out of the groove with the operation of the valve.
Install the supervisory switch with the trip rod centered in groove.
Step 6: Loosen 2 screws and slide the supervisory switch on the bracket. Adjustment is correct when switches are triggered with the trip rod seated in the valve stem groove and the switches are not triggered when the trip rod moves out of the groove.
Step 7: Tighten the screws and all mounting devices. Make sure that the trip rod moves in and out of the groove easily, and within one turn when the valve is operated from the fully open position towards to closing position the switches can be triggered.

Warning
In case the trip rod is too long, loosen the locking screw to remove the trip rod. Cut off the notched section (1 inch), and install the trip rod again by repeating step 3.
If there’s a pre-machined groove on the stem to mounting the supervisory switch, proceed with step 6 directly. If there is no pre- machined groove on the stem, proceed with step 4 and 5.
