Working principle

The level controls ON-OFF are tools of the electromechanical type, consisting of a guide rod on which glide / the floating / and, by a process connection fixed and / or sliding threaded or flanged and an electrical output.
The floats magnetically actuate the contacts located inside the sliding rod. The position of these contacts is defined in the order and can not be changed later.
Normally contacts are wired according to a specific internal standard.
The electrical connection, depending on the type of instrument, can be directly sealed cable, using DIN 43650 or via terminals housed in weatherproof housing IP65.
