Float switches

Versatile float switches from WIKA

Float switches in (the process) industry are used for the point-based limit level detection of one or several levels. They work independently of foaming, conductivity, dielectric, pressure, vacuum, temperature, vapours, condensation, bubble formation, boiling effects and vibrations and are suitable for almost all liquid media. The switching operation is contact-free, free from wear and needs no supply voltage. The simple and proven functional principle of the float switch enables a very wide range of applications, from general industrial applications through to use in process plants or in the shipbuilding industry.

How does a built-in magnetic system work?

A float with a built-in magnetic system moves with the level of the medium to be measured on a guide tube which has one or more reed switch contacts built into it. The magnet actuates the contacts at the pre-set switching heights and thus allows indi ...
