Float switch – liquid level switch – level sensor
Prevent your pump from running dry or overrunning your container with our float switches. This reliably monitors the level of fluid in containers or water tanks. You get a signal when it’s empty or filled. This automatically controls your pump by switching it on or off, which protects it from failure. Float switches are a cost-effective and maintenance-free alternative to expensive electronic sensors. Our level switches are very energy-saving as nopermanent power supply is needed.
Float switches off the shelf will never exactly meet your requirements and desires.
These do not fit your application. Either you change your container or device, or you will find a manufacturer that will tailor the level switch to your needs .
We can help you here and that at standard prices. Our developers modify one of our numerous standard types or develop a completely new variant for you (OEM product).

Float switch are available as standard products or customized variants.
However, for a standard product, the switching point, size or material composition is not aligned with your application. In order for your pump to turn on or off at the desired level, you need a sensor or switch that fulfills this. A suitable material should be chosen for the level switch that is suitable for the medium used, such as water or oil. You get an optimal result as just by customizing your needs and device.
Customize the float switch exactly to your requirements.
Depending on the liquid used, the case material and the float must be selected. The temperature of the liquid also plays an important role here. The right connector provides a fast and secure connection with the control or submersible pump. You should never switch a 230V pump directly as this destroys the float switch.
Choose your appropriate components. We are happy to support you in the optimal selection.
Float switches monitor filling able able. Predominantly, a container is edevoid or fully queried. However, other levels can also be monitored. This allows you to monitor the filling in more detail. Depending on the design, it has 1 or more switching points for the respective level to be detected. For this purpose, several floats are needed.
1 switching point
2 switching points
3 switching points
Our float switches operate according to the simple and durable principle of reed switch technology. The float lifts or lowers along a steep pipe depending on the level of fluid. The magnet in the float switches the reed contact inside the climbing tube without contact. Depending on the positioning of the magnet and reed switch, different switching points can be realized in order to recognize exactly your desired level. Level switches can have one or more switching points.
Compared to other techniques such as inductive, capacitive or ultrasound, these require no permanent power supply and are very energy-saving. They can be used in almost any environment. Swimmer switches are maintenance-free, durable and easy to assemble. This guarantees low installation and operating costs.
You can attach the level switch to different positions of your container. We generally distinguish between vertical mounting and horizontal mounting.
By means of a thread at the float switch, it is screwed to the container.
