    Default Pop Off automatic switches

    I have received a lot of PM's, texts and calls about the automatic switch I used to sell since Mike's accident.

    I haven't sold those switches in quite some time ... but they are still available. But since I'm no longer a shop owner and seem to never be doing something other than off road racing now ... I think it would be better for someone in the industry to supply them who will have the time to assist with installs & questions.

    I went by CS19's shop and spoke to him today about it and he agreed to field the phone calls and sell the switches to racers.

    Description: It's a 12v normally open switch that screws into your suction piece (1/4" NPT). They are variable pressure switches so they can be adjusted according to each boat's hardware set up. Once the switch sees an overcharge, it will supply the 12v to the dump valve allowing the Co2 to discharge opening the valve. Once below the overcharge, the switch stops supplying the 12v and the pop off can be closed again.

    Questions, feel free to call B1 racing.

    Thanks,
    Busby

    I was going to ask this question in my pop off thread. Cool!

    You just have to drill & tap your suction piece with a 1/4" NPT tap, install & wire. Sorry, I don't have any pics installed. It's as simple as it gets for a automatic set up. A no brainer in my opinion.

    Should it be mounted on the top, side, doesn't matter? Water proof/resistant unit?

    Depends on your set up/preference. I always installed on side about half way up on suction on port side. You want to get it into a location that has a constant pressure and will not be effected by cavitation and/or unloading of the pump. That will give a false pressure reading.

    As far as waterproof/resistant ... I never have had a problem with any. As with any electrical component ... they aren't 100% waterproof. But they are a sealed unit with a protective rubber boot. I wouldn't be installing it in a spot that you knew it was goint to be underwater for an extended period of time though. All of our boats hardly get any water inside ... if yours does, silicone ... just sayin lol

    Call Chris at B1 ... he will be able to answer all of your questions about the best pressure pick up locations. They have done a ton of data ports on suction pieces ... will be able to guide you in the right direction.
