The easy solution for thin wall tanks 1/4″ thick (6 mm): ELS-1100FLG Series Level Switch. No threads needed with these flanged units. Slip through a .75″ (19 mm) hole and tighten the jam nut; a Viton® gasket forms a tight seal. Ideal for sheet metal, molded plastic tanks and medical applications where elimination of exposed threads removes potential bacterial breeding grounds.
ELS Series Level Switches are low cost, compact, optical level sensors with built-in switching electronics. With no moving parts, these small units are ideal for a variety of point level sensing applications especially where dependability and economy are a must.
Level switches are suitable for high, low or intermediate level detection in practically any tank top, large or small. Installation is simple and quick through the tank top, bottom or side. Solid state-switching ensures dependability over long service life.
The sensor offers ±1 mm repeatability and broad liquid compatibility. They are not recommended for use in any liquid that crystallizes or leaves a solid residue.
