As the name says, a point-level switch lets you know when material reaches a certain point.
Common point-level indicators include Rotary level switches, Capacitance probes, Vibrating rods, probes, and forks, Diaphragm switches, and Tilt switches.
Point level indicators alert when stored material stops, contacts, or falls away from the instrument.
The switch is wired to an alarm, light, or control panel to alert of a high or low level or start or stop a process.
High-level alerts prevent overflows and ensure you maximize capacity, while low-level alerts prevent material outages that cause a dry run or production delay.
A point-level indicator has a fast ROI because it eliminates cleanup or material contamination from an overfill. Plus, there’s no wasted material from improper batching.
A point level indicator also detects plugged chutes by alerting when chutes clog with material. You can also wire a point-level switch for process control by using the switching relay to turn a process off or on … like a conveyor leg.
Point-level sensors will alert to a conveyor overload and prevent jamming or damaging conveyors. They also provide redundancy in an Inventory management system.
Use point-level and continuous-level sensors in tandem as a pre-alarm to prevent overfills that may damage equipment at the top of the vessel.
Best of all, point-level sensors are affordable. Compact and easy to wire, install point-level sensors a few vessels at a time, without a huge investment in time or money. and they often fall in an MRO budget and don’t require capital expense approval.
