WA170MECHANICAL FLOAT SWITCH
Lowvoltage mechanically-activated float switch for low current panels and alarms
|On this page:||Downloads (PDF):|
The WA170 Mechanical FloatSwitch offers a reliable low current control for AC and DC applications inpotable water, wastewater, and sewage. The internal switching mechanismhas sealed gold cross-point contacts for reliable low current operation. Common applications include: alarm dialers, pump controllers, SCADA systems,intrinsically safe barriers, solar applications, and other low current controland alarm applications.
Models to Meet Your Needs
We offer a Normally Open (NO) model for high level applications. Thismodels control switch turns on (closes) when the float tips 45 degrees abovehorizontal signaling a high level, and turns off (opens) when the float drops 45degrees below horizontal. We also offer a Normally Closed (NC) Model forlow level applications. This models control switch turns on (closes)when the float drops 45 degrees below horizontal signaling a low level, andturns off (opens) when the float tips 45 degrees above horizontal.
