Principle of Operation

Model Model
(VMT-04-F92-FLP) (VMT-16-SSCG)

Top mounted level switches work on permanent magnet reed switch basis. The floats which contain permanent
magnets move freely between their stops rising or falling with liquid level movement. Hermetically sealed within
the tube are reed switches, completely isolated from the medium. The magnet's field actuates the reed switch
as the float moves while the stoppers restrict overrun and prevent the reed switch returning to its original
position. Stopper positions should not be changed .

SALIENT FEATURES

Reed - Switch actuated level switches work on the principle of magnetic flux linkage and therefore they are
glandless and leak-proof instruments.

No Power Consumption.

Contacts are potential free, NO, NC or changeover contacts can be provided.

Practically no maintenance is required except periodic cleaning.

As reed-switches are inside metallic tube-guide pipe,they are protected from mechanical damage.

As the reed switches are "hermetically sealed-in-glass," under an inert gas atmosphere' contacts are
protected from contamination.

Gold contacts, due to their low contact resistance is generally recommended for low voltage application.
Reed switches have Rhodium on gold contacts.

Wherever Low Voltage are available 24V or less Reed-Switch actuated level switches may be used directly,
Otherwise it should be used in conjunction with our "Electronic control Unit." This ensures enhanced life of
the level switch.
0 0
Wide operating temperature range from -40C + 175C.

Reed-Actuated level switches are ideal where vibration is involved.

In a single level switch we offer a maximum of 5 level sensing.

For highly viscous liquids heavy floats with teflon coated guide pipes are available & also our VMT-EXT
models can be used.

Electronic Control Unit
Mahalaxmi make Electronic control unit in conjunction with level switches can be used for pump control, opening
and closing of electrically operated valves, heaters and or high and low level indication.

The electronic unit Model LC1FL reduces the voltage and converts it to 5 VDC for operation of reedswitches
enhancing their life, above all ensuring operational safety. The LED's in the front panel indicates Main Power
Supply On, Pump Start and Stop conditions. The start/stop push buttons in the front panel enables testing of the
control unit and also manual start and stop. The control unit has a Change over potential free relay output
contact-hold on type. Contact change over takes place between High and Low level only. Relay contacts are
rated 5 Amps at 230 VAC. Control action can be reversed at site by changing connections from NC to NO.

For certain applications where high and low level indications are required, 2 separate relay output contacts are
provided in the control unit-with LED indications for High, Low and Mains on

Model LC2FL are used in boilers where HL & LL are used for Pump start & stop while VLL is used for heater cut
off.
