The FSVERT5/16 vertical float switch is a low cost device to monitor water level. Switch operation can be nullified by debris, foam, or contaminants. Care should be taken that the float is able to move without restriction as might occur if the float is mounted too close to the side of a tank or support structure.

Danger: Never apply lethal voltages in areas that have liquids as there is a danger of electrocution. Always follow local codes for using electrical equipment.

Caution: EMS products are not designed to be sole elements of critical process or safety applications. These applications should always be designed with redundancy.
