Connection diagram of PNP and NPN transistor outputs for electronic pressure switches

Manufacturers of electronic pressure switches often offer both PNP and NPN switching outputs. Here is a brief explanation how the two different outputs should be connected.In principle, both are bipolar transistors in which only the internal arrangement of the pn transitions differs. This is why the load must be connected differently to the transistor outputs.PNP …
