Veris H701 Current Switch


  • Retrofit or new construction – high-performance devices in solid-core housings.
  • Adjustable trip point – precise current trip point setting.
  • Low setpoint – minimum trip point as low as 1 A, no need for multiple wraps of the conductor through the sensor, even on loads as small as 1/5 hp.
  • Small size – fits easily inside small enclosures.
  • Self-gripping iris on split-core housings for easy installation.
  • Induced from monitored conductor sensor power.

Veris Industries is an energy and environmental sensor partner that provides quality products for commercial HVAC and other automation applications. We offer complete lines of reliable, long-lasting innovative power monitoring products. Hawkeye H701 adjustable current switches offer high performance, with a wide array of amperage range options. These products can accurately detect belt loss, coupling shear or other mechanical failure on unit vents, exhaust fans, recirculation pumps and other fixed loads down to as little as 1/5 hp.

Dimensional Drawing

Detects Belt Loss/Coupling Shear

Now you can easily detect when drive belts slip, break, or pump couplings shear. In fact, a typical HVAC motor that loses its load has a reduction of the current draw of up to 50%. That’s why our sensors are the industry standard for status.


  • Detecting belt loss, coupling shear, and mechanical failure
  • Verifying lighting circuit and other electrical service run times
  • Monitoring status of industrial process equipment
  • Monitoring status of critical motors (compressor, fuel, etc.)
  • VFD output on/off status
