Cynergy3 Float Switch

The Cynergy3 SSF24 series float switch is a vertical mount type and has NO/NC output This float switch has a stainless steel 316 body. It has a maximum operating pressure of 10bar. The switch is mounting on the top or the bottom of the tank from the inside. Hence, it requires access to the inside of the tank. The switch action may be reversed by removing the float, inverting it and then refitting it to the stem.
What is a float switch?
An SSF24X100 switch is the type of level sensor, a gadget to recognize the level of fluid inside a tank. The switch might be utilized to control a pump, as a pointer, a caution, or to control different gadgets. It consists of a reed switch and a pivoted magnet and can be used for normally open (N/O) or normally closed (N/C) operation. The switch action can be reversed rotating the switch through 180°.

Guide how to choose the correct float switch
One of the most reliable, well-demonstrated technologies for fluid level detecting is float switch. This sort of switch involves a magnet contained inside the float and also an attractive reed switch contained inside a settled housing. The movement of the float, due to changing fluid level, will cause the reed change to work (for instance close or open) at a specific level. This trusted and tried technology depends on a generally straightforward plan that offers long haul quality without the requirement for the client to calibrate a switch.

There are different methods available on how to choose a float switch for a particular application, here are the main factors to consider:

Physical arrangement and style
The choice of styles depends on the physical arrangement of the tank, availability of mounting positions and whether there is access inside of the tank.
Fundamental styles are horizontal / side mounting and vertical mounting. Horizontal / side mounting has a fixed housing, which you can find on the wall of a tank and it has got a hinged float attached to the fixed housing. Vertical usually have a fixed vertical stem and that is installed at the top or bottom of the tank.

Material selection
It is very important to choose a float switch that is made from the right materials, which are compatible with the liquids and temperatures of the chosen application. While using incorrect material it can resolve in damaging the component as well as the failure of a float switch.

Material types:
Nylon – used for oils, diesel, organic chemicals and MEK (methylethylketon) based printing inks
Polypropylene (PP) – acids and alkali, detergents, oils, water, organic chemicals
Polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) – used for more aggressive chemicals and higher temperatures, up to 120°C
Stainless steel – medical and food industries, hydraulic fluids, chemicals and environments with high-temperatures up to 135°C
Buna/Nitrophyl – diesel, oil, petrol and water (stationary applications)
D300 foam (PVC) – mostly for hydraulic oils and chemical solutions

Electrical
You need to fully understand what is the nature of the load that requires to be switched and make sure that the float switch is adequate for holding your load. The electrical ratings, which we provide in specifications are resistive loads.

Cables
In areas where harsh liquids may spill onto external wiring, it is important to underline particular materials for the cables in connection to the float switches. You can either use standard, UL-approved cable types for the range of float switches, as well as high-temperature, low smoke zero halogen (LSZL) and other specialised materials.
