Thank you for the update. No, the pressure regulator only regulates the air coming out of the supply hose to the tools. It is adjustable for different tool requirements for air pressure to operate that tool.

The air pressure electrical switch is what determines when the compressor shuts off at a pre-determined setting of the switch. If your air compressor model say's that its target psi is 125 psi that is when the pressure switch should shut off the motor.

I am sorry if I was unclear before. The terms pressure switch and pressure regulator can be confusing as to what there intent.
