Level Sensors and Floats
Level Sensors are also known as "Float Switches". We use this term to describe Reed Sensors for level monitoring where the magnet (in a float) is installed together with the Sensor to form one unit. These are available as normally open (Form A) and normally closed (Form B) depending on the version. Customer-specific dimensions and several switching points can also be realised.
We also offer a variety of Floats for use with our Reed Chains or the development of individual solutions.

How does a Level Sensor work?
A Reed Switch is located inside a vertical tube. An external float with integrated magnet rises or falls along the tube and actuates the Reed Switch depending on the level. The actuation principles correspond to those of the Reed Switch.
