Series PLS2 Paddle Level Switch

3 Sensitivity Settings, Top or Side Mounting

The Series PLS2 is an electromechanical level switch designed for level monitoring of bulk materials. The rotating measuring vane is driven by a brushless synchronous motor at one revolution per minute. As product builds up, the paddle rotation is impeded and the resulting motor torque activates the output switch and stops the motor. A spring mechanism reactivates the motor and returns the switch to normal state when the material no longer impedes the paddle rotation. A torque adjusting mechanism eliminates the need for different sized paddles. The PLS2 is designed with the industry standard 1-1/4" male NPT connection and unit can be side or top mounted.

Product Applications

  • Level monitoring of bulk materials
