Temperature Measurement


Miniature float switch design

June 2019 Temperature Measurement

WIKA now offers OEM manufacturers the miniature float switch model RLS-7000/8000, particularly suitable for level monitoring in small tanks. The performance and design meet the requirements of original equipment manufacturers for reliable as well as economical components.

In addition to the standard version, design-in solutions are also possible: The model RLS-7000/8000 can be adapted to the respective application through customisation of design, as well as tank and electrical connections. The switch can be installed vertically (RSL-7000) or horizontally (RSL-8000). Its switching function, normally open or normally closed, can be reversed by rotating the float body (RLS-7000) or the complete instrument (RLS-8000) through 180°.

The new float switch has been designed for a long service life and is available in a variety of robust and chemically resistant plastics with very low water absorption. Its reed contacts provide up to a billion switching cycles, depending on the application.
