Measuring techniques for point level detection 

In point level detection, a point level switch detects when a certain predefined level is reached. Such a device is employed when it is not necessary to measure every possible intermediate level, as is the case with continuous level measurement. A switching command starts or stops filling equipment such as conveyors or pumps. Point level switches outputting a binary signal can be integrated into a process control system.
Point level detection systems can be used in liquids, pastes, powders or coarse bulk solids.

Typical applications for point level detection are process tanks, storage tanks, silos and pipelines in the process industry. Point level detection is used for minimum or maximum detection, leak detection or overfill protection.
Every industry places its own specific requirements on the measurement technology it uses. A point level switch perfectly adapted to the measuring point can be supplied by taking the properties of the medium as well as the individual process conditions into account.

With the "finder" you can simply and quickly determine the right point level switch for your application.
