Variable level control switches in a variety of designs. Single and double piggyback VLFS.

Features and Benefits

Variable Level Control Switches

  • Float is constructed of durable PVC/polypropylene encasing variable level switch
  • Standard mechanical variable level control switches
  • Temperature rating of 140° F (60° C)
  • 18/2 type SJOW CPE cord standard
  • Long cords are available in 15', 25', 35' and 50' (5 m, 8 m, 11 m and 15 m) 
  • Pipe clamp or adjustable weight mounting types
  • Low current switches, 30 VDC/.1 amps, for Class I, Division 1, Group C & D locations when used in intrinsically-safe circuits
  • Approximately 1/2" (50 mm) liquid level differential in switching action

Variable level control switch is normally open when hanging vertically above liquid level. Switch closes when it reaches a few degrees above the horizontal position. Applications:

  • Switch for simplex or duplex pump control and high level alarm on electrical alternating control panel systems for dewatering, effluent and sewage applications
  • Switch for A-Pak
  • High level alarm switch
