Signal-Rated, Mechanical (Non-Mercury) Float Switches: “L,” “N,” “P,” “V,” and “X” Models

Orenco® Signal-Rated Non-Mercury Float Switches are used with pump control panels and alarms in areas where components containing mercury are prohibited. They’re intended for low-amperage signals and aren’t capable of carrying the current necessary to start or operate a pump. They have a “drawdown” value — the difference in liquid level between the switch’s activation and deactivation points.

“L” Model

  • Normally-open default state (contact is open when float switch is hanging)
  • Approved for intrinsically safe relays (very low amperage)
  • 3-inch (76-mm) drawdown
  • Suitable for MVP and VCOM panels
     

“N” Model

  • Normally closed default state (contact is open when float switch is floating)
  • Approved for intrinsically safe relays (very low amperage)
  • Suitable for electromechanical panels with “RO” option
  • 2-inch (76-mm) drawdown
  • Super Vu-Tron® cords: flexible 2-conductor (UL, CSA) SJOOW
     

“P” Model

  • Normally-open default state (contact is open when float switch is hanging)
  • Approved for intrinsically safe relays (very low amperage)
  • Suitable for Orenco MVP and VCOM panels
  • 2-inch (76-mm) drawdown
  • Super Vu-Tron® cords: flexible 2-conductor (UL, CSA) SJOOW
     

“V” Model

  • Normally-open default state (contact is open when float switch is hanging)
  • Approved for intrinsically safe relays (very low amperage)
  • <1-inch (<25-mm) drawdown
  • Suitable for MVP and VCOM panels
     

“X” Model

  • Normally closed default state (contact is open when float switch is floating)
  • <1-inch (<25-mm) drawdown
