this is the same thing that brad kilby at onboardair.com, and grainger is going to sell you, they come in all diffrent pressure settings and are adjustable.

You can also use the Quick Air Pressure switch. Looks similar to the ARB switch. It goes on about 80 and off at about 115. It is only $19. I got mine from Rubicon Express. Part # PS2 (I think)

I used an adjustable unit from McMaster Carr. I have it set for on at 80 and off at 110. It also has a pressure relief valve to allow easier compressor start ups. If you use this type, you need to get a check valve to prevent draining your tank, or cycling the compressor on and off.

Just go down to your friendly compressor store, OSH, Graingers, etc. Any old compressor switch will work. All it is, is a spring loaded set of points that break at a preset or adjustable value, depending on what switch you get. Voltage of the switch makes no difference.

I have the same ARB switch on my setup - it cost me about CDN $60.00 and kicks in at 85psi and off at about 100!

I have used the quick air one from Rubicon Express for about 3 years. Before that I ran those from 110v home units. Those suck!!! I went through 2 of them <IMG SRC="smilies/pissed.gif" border="0"> before I finally went with the quick air <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
