In cycling clutch systems with a fixed orifice tube, a low-pressure or cycling clutch switch is placed in series with the compressor clutch circuit so it can turn the clutch on or off.

The AC cycling switch de-energizes the clutch and stops the compressor if the pressure gets below a certain level (usually about 20-25 psi) .It closes and turns on the compressor at about 40-47 psi.
