Binswitch - Programmable
Capacitance Point Level Indicator

         
 

The Binswitch detects level or plug situations for bulk granular solids or liquids in tanks, bins, or silos and can be used as a plug or choke detector in chutes, conveyors and elevator legs.  A two color LED shows material present or absent.

The programmable version includes a time delay on material arriving or leaving, and fail-safe relay settings for high and low levels.

The sensor is fully encapsulated in a 30 mm diameter nylon body that is corrosion and abrasion resistant, dust-tight and waterproof.
