Level Switch - An all-round point level switch

Admittance Smart Switch Series

The Gladiator Smart Admittance Switch is a third generation, state-of-the-art level probe, designed to operate in tough industrial environments.

Principle of Operations
The probe of the Admittance Switch forms one plate of a capacitance circuit, with the vessel wall making the second plate. The dielectric constant of the product between the probe and the vessel wall will cause a change of capacitance as the level approaches the probe. The change is detected, amplified and used to switch a relay for indication or control purposes. A special circuit is used to ignore product build-up between the sensing probe (active element) and guard, and also between the guard and vessel wall.
