Vibrating Level Switch

SITRANS LVS300 is a vibrating rod point level switch for high, low, or demand level detection of bulk solids in bins, silos, or hoppers. The durable single rod probe avoids bridging and withstands harsh application conditions. The LVS300 has a compact design and can be top, side or angle mounted. The vibrating rod design ensures the product will not be impacted by bridging of traditional forks in applications with buildup potential. A durable probe design ensures the product will withstand heavier materials without damage or bending
