Float switch type ABS KS

Environmentally friendly floats of high quality

The KS float switch, used in liquids for control or signal activation, operates in response to the liquid level. It is also suitable for use in sewage and for automatic level control. The KS float switch is impact- and shock-resistant, mercury-free, and environmentally friendly.

Main design features

In the float switch, a ball moves according to the floating position, thereby operating a high-quality micro switch. The recessed rolling surface for the ballensures trouble-free operation even if the cable is twisted.

In order to vary the switching differential, it is possible to shorten or lengthen the cable fastening position. The minimum cable length is 50 mm, which corresponds to a minimum switching differential of 100 mm. The switching height itself is set by raising or lowering the fixing point.

It is important to ensure that the float switch can float upwards or downwards unrestricted.
