Literature Describes New Gems Shock Cushioned Liquid Level Switch

Literature is available describing the LS-38760 level switch from Gems Sensors Division. Designed with a "shock-absorber" cushioned f l o a t and cushionmounted switch, it is ideal for use wherever liquids are turbulent, and where there is excessive vibration in fuel or chemical applications in tank trucks and mobile construction equipment.

The switch offers double protection with O-rings to cushion the float, and with internal rubber grommets to cushion the reed switch element. The switch is lightweight, featuring an aluminum stem. Mounting is available for electrical grounding. The float is made of Buna N; float cushions are made of Viton A. It withstands temperatures to 180 F and pressures to 150 psi.

The simple design of this switch incorporates only one moving part, the float. This magnetic float will only respond to the surface of the liquid. The output signal is a direct level measurement as opposed to inferred or indirect measurement as is found in alternative devices.
