The SafePoint rotary paddle point level sensor is a self-validating device that detects material presence plus continuously monitors its own ability to function. Should the self evaluation detect an internal fault, an output will react accordingly. This includes fault due to power loss. When a high level sensor fails, it can be costly to find out about it when your bin/silo overfills. The cost of an overfilled silo can add up from material loss, cleanup, lost production, and even regulatory costs. Other features of the unit include rugged construction, motor shut-off when paddle becomes impeded by material to increase motor life, and local status indicating light (on most models).
