Side Mount Float Switches

Gems™ compact side mount level switches are designed for use in small tanks and vessels. Engineered plastic versions offer broad compatibility in water, oils and chemicals. Our stainless steel or zinc bodies are ideal for use in rugged environments. The all-stainless steel versions are generally recognized as safe with FDA for food contact regulations.

Because of their horizontal attitude side-mounted units use a different acutation method from other float level products. The basic principle, however, is the same: as a direct result of rising or falling liquid, a magnetic field is moved into the proximity of a reed switch, causing actuation.
