Level Measurement – Electrical Devices

Measuring and detecting the level of liquids and solids with electrical devices. Single-point level devices, such as ball floats, diaphragms, and rotating  paddles  that  activate  electrical switches; continuous  liquid level measurement  with a float-actuated  cable  rotating  a multiple-turn potentiometer; donut  float  containing  magnets  actuating

follower magnet on cable; level detection with conductivity  electrodes; and  level detection with a vibrating paddle  actuated  by  a solenoid.

Prerequisites: Working knowledge of electricity  and familiarity  with sight and float instruments.
