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.

- What are the two dry product level switch model types? What ranges do they cover? How are they adjusted? How many set-points do they have?
- GSD3DA - gravity (elastomer) suspension, aluminum housing, polyurethane diaphragm, standard 15 amp switch. PSD16A - pneumatic (fabric), suspension, aluminum housing, filter fabric diaphragm, polyester 150 micron permeability, standard 15 amp switch. They can be adjusted to any level. They are adjusted by a screw adjustment. One setpoint available.
