The K06 family of level switches have bodies made of stainless steel and sensor dome made of glass.
They are economical, dependable, and compact in size with overall dimensions of 95 x 27 mm and have no moving parts. They are suitable for harsh industrial environments involving extreme temperatures, pressures, vibration and shock.
These level switches use infrared technology for their operation.
They consist of an infrared emitter and an optical receiver. They have an operating temperature range of -40 to 125 deg C.
There is a programmable timer inside these K06 level switches that allows a delay time to be set for delaying the output switching. The output modes are normally closed in presence of liquids and open in air or vice versa.
The DC output current is up to 100mA depending on model.
The K06 level switches must not be installed close to any infra red sources.
The dome must be at least 50mm away from any reflective surface.
These level switches have electronic protection against transient over voltage, and reverse polarity.
The K06 family of level switches have a detection accuracy of +/- 2 mm. They can withstand maximum pressure of 60 bars.
