How to Choose the Right Level Switch

The Product Guide

Flow level switches are an important part of any water system. They help to regulate the water flow in order to protect your equipment while maximizing your efficiency and safety. Many people don’t know that there are different types of level switches, each with their own benefits. The nivåbryter Product Guide will teach you how to choose the right type for your situation!

The first thing to consider is the type of fluid you will be sensing. Some switches are designed to sense water, while others sense different fluids like oil or gas. If your switch is exposed to non-compatible liquids, it could cause corrosion and damage your system!


Different level sensors have different levels of safety control required depending on what they’re controlling. For example, a pump might not need as much protection because the stopping point can simply be changed manually if there’s an issue with flow rates too high or low for safe operation. A furnace however would require more automated controls so that dangerous fluctuations in temperature aren’t allowed to take place due to lack of adequate cooling/heating fuel supply at certain times during specific operations within heat applications .

Taking all these things into consideration will help you choose the right level switch for your application.

Lastly, it’s important to choose a system that is compatible with your current control hardware and software. Most switches work with either analog or digital controls, but some may require specific wiring for compatibility. Make sure you know what kind of connections need to be made before choosing a switch!

The float level sensor is the most popular type because they are simple and effective at preventing dangerous fluctuations in flow rates like those mentioned above . These types of sensors sense changes in water levels based on their buoyancy (float) using an electrical process known as differential pressure (DP). If there isn’t enough fluid for proper operation, then the DP will increase which triggers an alarm/stop signal depending on programmed settings within your equipment controller .
