The Series PLS2 paddle level switch is an electromechanical level switch designed for level monitoring of bulk materials. The rotating measuring vane is driven by a brushless synchronous motor at one revolution per minute. As product builds up the paddle rotation is impeded and the resulting motor torque activates the output switch and stops the motor. A spring mechanism reactivates the motor and returns the switch to normal state when the material no longer impedes the paddle rotation. A torque adjusting mechanism eliminates the need for different sized paddles. The PLS2 is designed with the industry standard 1¼-in. male NPT connection and the unit can be side or top mounted.
