Level Switches

Level switches are sensors which produce an electric or electronic output when the level of liquid or solid in a vessel reaches a specific point.

There are many sensor options including capacitive, conductivity, displacer, float, fork, optical, paddle and vibrating rod.

Normally level switches send an electronic or electric contact output to a valve or other device to begin or end the filling or draining operation for a tank or vessel.
