The MBC 5100 is a block-type compact pressure switch that is used for marine purposes. Marine applications where reliability and space are highly important need these MBC pressure switches as they are compact and constructed based on the new block design. This makes the machine capable of surviving in harsh environments on machine rooms aboard ships.

They have high vibration resistance and are approved by most users in the marine field. They have a fixed yet low differential which ensures an accurate monitoring of certain critical pressures. The MBV test valves are delivered as standard choices for pressure switches.

Pressure ranges from -0.2 to 400 bar and resistance to vibrations and shock, along with compact design and IP65 enclosure, make them quick and easy to operate, requiring low installation costs. They come with a diaphragm version for situations that involve pressure peaks, and are easy to mount and use as a differential pressure switch.
