Gentec Float Switches


Quantity of item required. Cable is quoted in metres.

Float Switches contain a reed switch with an actuator magnet in the float. Material is glass filled polypropylene or nylon 6.6 moulding. Contacts close when the magnet assembly reaches the centre line of the main body. Normally open or normally closed operations depend upon orientation. i.e if the magnet floats away or towards switch. Detects rise or fall of liquid, as well as liquid flow or predetermined volume. Design allows fitting to be achieved both as an internal operation or externally if necessary.
