A side mounted float liquid level switch is a simple yet effective device designed for monitoring and controlling liquid levels in various industrial applications. As the liquid level changes, the float rises or falls with the fluid, causing the pivoting arm to actuate a switch mechanism.
Note: There is a certain error allowed in the total length of the float and connecting rod.
Tips: Can side mounted float switch be used for both high and low-level alarms?
Yes, a side-mounted float switch can be utilized for both high and low-level alarms. The switch is positioned at a specific height on the container or tank, activating when the liquid reaches either the upper or lower set level. For a high-level alarm, the switch triggers when the liquid rises to the preset maximum level, signaling potential overflow or overfill. Conversely, for a low-level alarm, the switch activates when the liquid drops to the predetermined minimum level, indicating a need for refilling or intervention. This dual-functionality enhances versatility and efficiency in monitoring fluid levels, making side-mounted float switches suitable for various applications, such as in industrial processes, water treatment, or tank management systems.
