The SafePoint rotary paddle level switch with a self-validating design detects and indicates material presence or absence plus it continuously monitors its own ability to function. This functional analysis includes verification of overall electro-mechanical sensor health and reaction to system input power failure, which makes the SafePoint a truly “fail-safe” level sensor. The unit provides a relay output signal condition if a sensor failure occurs or upon loss of input power. The SafePoint incorporates patented use of Hall-effect technology, dual outputs to indicate both material presence and unit health, and microcontroller technology to continuously protect bulk solids processing and storage from the consequences of unknown sensor failure.
Other features of the SafePoint bin level switch include its rugged construction, twist On/Off cover for bolt free removal and motor shut-off when paddle becomes impeded to maximize motor life. For more details please visit www.monitortech.com
The optional hazardous location model of the SafePoint is a practical solution for indoor grain hoppers and bins or other confined storage areas that may contain high levels of potentially explosive dust.
