Larson Electronics Releases Explosion-Proof Float Switch, Magnetic Operation, 125/250V, ATEX/IECEx

Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting and equipment sectors, announced the release of a magnetically operated leak-proof, explosion-proof float switch that operates automatically to indicate the tank level. This unit allows operators to start and stop pumps, open or close valves and actuate level alarm signals. This float switch is ATEX/IECEx certified and weatherproof.

The EPSW-FLS-1KPS-10A-V2 explosion-proof float switch is rated for use in Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups C and D; and Class II, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups E, F, and G hazardous locations. This NEMA 4-rated explosion-proof float switch has no bellows, springs or seals and instead contains a free-swinging float that attracts a magnet located within the switch’s solid metal body, which actuates a snap switch with a basic lever arm. This unit is made of durable brass that can withstand 1000 psig (69 bar) of pressure.

Larson Electronics’ explosion-proof float switch is offered in either a single pole snap switch or a double pole snap switch. This float switch operates on 10 amps at 125/250V AC with a 3/4-inch conduit connection and a 1-1/2-inch male process connection and can withstand temperature changes between -20˚C and 135˚C for NEC/CEC or -20˚C to 73˚C for ATEX/IECEx. This unit installs directly into the tank and is side-wall mounted with a threaded branch connection or a flange. Suitable applications include fuel management, waste water treatment equipment, food processing facilities and more.
