Why use Tamper Switch?
Valve tamper switches are mounted on the various fire sprinkler control valves to monitor the position of the valve. It’s critical that the sprinkler control valves remain open because, otherwise, the water will not flow through the pipes when there is a fire emergency.

A tamper switch is a mechanical and electrical device connected to a fire protection valve that signals a warning if the valve partially or fully closes. Regardless of the type of switch, they all function similarly. These devices feature an actuating unit, usually a lever or cable with a resting position.
Tamper switches help ensure that fire sprinklers are always operational in an emergency. Water flow detection switches (aka water flow detectors) raise the alarm when water is flowing, typically from an activated sprinkler head. An activated sprinkler is an emergency whether it happens because of a fire or damage.
