Wika Model ELS Float Switch with chamber

Test Product

In an external chamber (bypass chamber), a float with a permanent magnet moves on a guide tube in relation to the liquid level, following the principle of communicating vessels.

Within the guide tube is fitted a reed contact (inert gas contact), which is energised, through the non-magnetic walls of the float and guide tube, by the approach of the float magnet. By using a magnet and reed contact the switching operation is non-contact, free from wear and needs no power supply. The contacts are potential-free.

The switching functions always refer to a rising liquid level. 

The float switch is simple to mount and maintenance-free, so the costs of mounting, commissioning and operation are low.

Special features

■ Freely selectable switch position through fixing the float switch at the required level 

■ Large range of application due to the simple, proven functional principle 

■ For harsh operating conditions, long service life
