Float Switch

The Kari Float Switch is a control device for filling and discharging pumps, motor and magnetic valves. It is also an alarm device at certain pre-determined surface levels. FIMKO Oy (The Finnish Electrical lnspectorate), has performed the tests according to the all-European CCA-agreement and approved the Kari Float Switch for use in non-flammable liquids at 250 Volts. In dangerous enviroments (e.g. wells and pumping stations ) we recommend 24 V voltage. In potentially explosive atmospheres (e.g. oil tanks ) the Kari Float Switch can be used in connection with (Ex)i-isolator switch units. Due to its large float casing the Kari Float Switch has a buoyancy which guarantees smooth, trouble-free operation under all conditions.
