Level Measurement

Side Mount Level Float Switch

BW17X (IECEx Liquid Applications)

BW17X level float switch magnetic type horizontal mount


iSOLV BW17X Side Mount Level Float Switches are simple in design and ruggedly built for long service dependability. It is available in single or multi-station unit, which provides high, low and intermediate point liquid level measurement. BW17X can be designed and built for precise requirements as per customer’s unique configurations such as the broad choices; mounting connections, float and stem materials and each independent float actuating position.

Principle of Operation:

Magnetic type level float switch has a magnetic float moves with the medium level to actuate a hermetically sealed, magnetic reed switch within the stem.
