S298 - Capacitance Type Coolant Level Switch With Voltage Output

Coolant Level Switch providing 2-state voltage output on a single pin. Fitted with integrated Delphi Metri-pack 150 series 3 pin connector.

The S298is an active device designed to give an alarm signal if liquid falls below, or rises above, a preset level. It can be specified with a delay to eliminate false alarms due to turbulence.Containing a factory programmable microprocessor and an integral 3-pin Metripack 150 connector, this switch can be configured to provide most industry standard voltage outputs.Its small footprint with limited intrusion into the tank means a reduced risk of damage and a wide range of customer specifiable options make it suitable for most applications.

The switch is designed to operate in both earthed metal and isolated plastic tanks. For high accuracy the S298is ideally mounted horizontally at the point where an alarm or control signal is required. However, the switch can be mounted vertically – contact Fozmula with your application requirements.
