Conductive Level Switches

Conductive level switches are primarily used for point level detection in conductive liquids for a wide range of different applications. These switches are very popular across a range of industries thanks to the safety features that they offer as well as for accurate level measurement that they are known for.

One of the biggest draw cards of this type of equipment is that there are no moving parts in the tank, and there are no calibration requirements, making these switches very easy to use. What they offer the user is a longer lifespan, minimal maintenance, reliable operation, and very few risks.

How Do Conductive Level Switches Work Exactly?

There are two measuring electrodes and the resistance between these electrodes changes by the absence or presence of a certain medium. When the electrodes come into conduct with a conductive liquid, and an electrical current starts to flow. The electronics in turn trigger a switching command.

When the tank is made out of a conductive material, it can act as the reference for a singular electrode but if the tank is non-conductive then an extra electrode needs to be added.

Benefits of Conductive Level Switches

  • One instrument for multi-point level detection
  • Easy setup and operation
  • Low cost point level detection
  • Very little to no maintenance involved
  • No moving parts
  • No calibration required
  • Safe operation
