SWI L500 Series | Custom Multi-Level Float Switches For Large Tanks


The wider displacement L500 Multi-Level Float Switch is designed to monitor up to six levels on a single device. With only a single entry, the L500 can track changing levels within a large tank, as well as monitor liquid interfaces of dissimilar liquids for oil/water separations, chemical emulsions and condensation levels. Probe lengths are available up to 15' with numerous combinations of floats, mounts and materials to suit every application. Additional options include a variety of enclosures, as well as integrations with thermostatic switches to provide level and temperature sensing capabilities within one control.

Principles of Operation

The switching action is achieved through the use of an internal magnet within the float assembly and its interaction with the switch mechanism. As the liquid level fluctuates inside the tank, the float moves. Its magnetic field actuates each reed switch inside the stem and completes an electrical circuit.
