Combining new technology with a familiar device, the Opti-Float level detector is a revolutionary innovation in discrete level detectors. It's made of safe, recyclable materials. Its mercury and lead free and is built to last for years of service.
The design of the Opti-Float level detector is amazingly simple.
Using fiber optic cable, it transmits a beam of light from an LED in a remote transceiver down to the float, where the beam makes and breaks depending on the tilt of the float.
When the transceiver detects the presence or absence of light, it activates a relay in the transceiver, which can then operate other devices. The transceivers are all dual rail mounted units, that can connect to two floats. Additional transceivers can be used for additional floats.
The float, cable and UL/CSA listed transceiver are durable and have been tested to over 1,000,000 operations.
