Level Switch Summary

The LS2000 level switch provides an economical solution for alarm and limit trip switch applications in process and plant installations. These thermal dispersion technology based level switches have no moving parts to maintain or foul to ensure long service life and reduce routine maintenance costs. These insertion type level switches provide a fast response, highly repeatable trip point with a heavy duty SDPT 6A relay contact. The LS2000 is for use in liquid or slurry level sensing, and as an interface switch between two non-miscible fluids.
