Powered by 12 or 24 VDC, model KA and KAX rotary paddle bin level indicators incorporate an AC motor that makes them a viable solution for process oriented systems requiring a low voltage power source, minimal installation cost, and frequent level cycling. This DC version of the rotary paddle level sensor includes electronics that converts the 12/24 VDC power source to 6 VAC energy that is used to operate a 6 VAC motor. Using an AC motor instead of a DC motor improves the performance of these models by insuring functional reliability and providing longer operational life than a DC motor. These rotary paddle level switches are versatile and can be used in a variety of powder and bulk solids storage applications. Other features include rugged construction, twist on/off cover, motor shut-off when paddle becomes impeded, and a hazardous location option (Model KAX).
