Reed switch demand delivers Liquid Level Switches
As industrial applications continue to require liquid level monitoring within a contained space, analysts predict that worldwide demand for reed switch technology will grow 7.4% by 2023. In response to this demand, TE Connectivity has designed Liquid Level Switches, a valuable, reliable and rugged product for industrial liquid level monitoring applications.
Liquid Level Switches use reed switch technology, delivering an extended product life of 10M+ cycles, high electrical load capacity, low contact resistance and UL approvals. In addition, TE’s Liquid Level Switches are offered in a wide range of standard and custom options providing exceptional price-to-performance. Liquid level switches can be found in applications such as HVAC, wastewater systems, chemical and petrochemicals, and in the food and beverage industry.
“To compete in today's ever-increasing competitive market, TE has developed Liquid Level Switches,” said Gaddiel Garcia, Product Manager, Position Sensors at TE Connectivity. “Liquid Level Switches require no power source to facilitate switching action giving our customers a flexible, yet reliable solution for industrial applications requiring liquid level monitoring within a contained space.”
Liquid Level Switches can be arranged to have normally closed or normally open switch indication with the rise or fall of liquid, and they can be horizontally or vertically oriented. All housings have at least IP65 enclosure rating and are available in different materials such as polypropylene, polyamide, polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), PVC, brass and stainless steel.
The electrical sealing of the level switches allows no direct contact with liquids, which could cause corrosion issues. Liquid Level Switches can be used in high temperature environments and no EMC testing is required.
