High value in material level indication and level control for liquids, granules, slurries, powder and bulk solids to prevent bin overflows, material outage and plugged chutes.
Point Level Switches are used to determine when a liquid or dry material has reached a predetermined level. Once the media reaches the level, a contact open or closes and sends an output to an alarm, pump, PLC or other control device. These types of instruments are ideal when continuous measurement or monitoring of intermediate level is not important.
Point level switches are typically used to control low or high levels in tanks, hoppers, silos or other vessels.
In order to improve efficiency and to prevent spills or overfill conditions.
Typical applications for point level switches: High- or low-level alarm

Level switches for point level measurement and measuring techniques
In point level detection, a point level switch detects when a certain predefined level is reached. Such a device is employed when it is not necessary to measure every possible intermediate level, as is the case with continuous level measurement. A switching command starts or stops filling equipment such as conveyors or pumps. Point level switches outputting a binary signal can be integrated into a process control system.
Point level detection systems can be used in liquids, pastes, powders or coarse bulk solids. Typical applications for level switches are:
- minimum or maximum detection
- leak detection
- overfill protection
in process tanks, storage tanks, silos and pipelines.
