Brake Light

  • Brake lights serve an important function as they warn the driver behind that your vehicle is slowing down. Off-road vehicles driving on public roads must be equipped with a brake light system according to the road rules.
    Although many brake light systems are commonly solved by using a mechanical switch, Danfoss recommends using an electronic switch. 


    Problems with Mechanical Switches

    • Mechanical switches often leak causing warranty claims 
    • The electrical contacts can burn out resulting in failure 
    • The general accuracy is around +/- 5% 
    • The set point can drift over time 
    • Over and burst pressure limitation due to moving parts 

    Benefits by Using Electronic Pressure Switch
    • Electronic pressure switches have 100% welded construction so no leakage possible 
    • No electrical contacts to burn out 
    • Highly accurate – better than 2% typical 
    • No set point drift 
    • Over and burst pressure advantage due to fully welded design 
    • All the advantages from the “world” of transmitters in relation to vibration shock etc. 
    • A more reliable brake system 
    • Less wear outs of the switch due to no mechanical parts 
    • Reduced warranty claims 

    Typical Specifications
    • Switch point range: 3 – 12 bar 
    • Pressure range: 0 – 16 bar 
    • Temperature range: -40 – 125 °C 
    • Accuracy: 2% FS
