The WA170 Mechanical Float Switch offers a reliable low current control for AC and DC applications in potable water, wastewater, and sewage.  The internal switching mechanism has sealed gold cross-point contacts for reliable low current operation.  Common applications include: alarm dialers, pump controllers, SCADA systems, intrinsically safe barriers, solar applications, and other low current control and alarm applications. 

Models to Meet Your Needs
We offer a Normally Open (NO) model for high level applications.  This model's control switch turns on (closes) when the float tips 45 degrees above horizontal signaling a high level, and turns off (opens) when the float drops 45 degrees below horizontal.  We also offer a Normally Closed (NC) Model for low level applications.  This model's control switch turns on (closes) when the float drops 45 degrees below horizontal signaling a low level, and turns off (opens) when the float tips 45 degrees above horizontal.
