Plastic level switches
Plastic construction means low cost but not low quality. Hypalon is similar to Teflon – nothing sticks to it, including nasty substances, sewage and waste. The K series ultra close differential float switchesis endowed with superb characteristics, including:
Low differential switching
All direction tilt action
S.P.D.T 3 wire single point switch
Polypropylene & hypalon construction
Wide range of cables lengths available
Stable repeatable switching action
No mercury or lead components
Compact size, 75mm diameter
Optional cable weight available

Level indicator
The Kelco V25L is a single point magnetically actuated visual level indicator for water tanks and dieseline fuel tanks. When installed through the side of a tank, the V25L visual level indicator gives a bright red or green, high or low indication of the liquid level. Ideal for water tanks, chemical holding tanks and dieseline fuel tanks, the V25Lis built tough and is designed for many years of reliable use.
Easy to install
Corrosion resistant
No power needed
Clear bright display
Shatter proof window
Dieseline model available

Capacitive sensor for turbulent oil
The LCC1 capacitive level meter and switch is designed for oil measurement and control when working with very turbulent oil levels, especially in flat containers like compressors, engine oil pans, gearboxes or where oil level is oscillating. The programmed damping parameter can reduce the oscillating of the signal by using average mean values without reducing accuracy. The hysteresis of the switch point can also be programmed by a parameter. The LCC1 has a reference structure at the end of the tip to compensate for different permittivity. This allows detection of different oils without recalibrating the sensor. The capacitive technology allows work with different viscosities in oil, linked to different oil temperatures.
Designed for oil level detection in crankcases
Ideal for difficult turbulent applications
No moving parts
Switch output (push pull) and 4..20 mA output
0...10 V output option
Parameter programming allows to adapt to different requirements and application
