Tilt Switch

Bin Level Controls » Tilt Switch

The operation of the Tilt Switch is very simple.  It is usually suspended by a wire rope or chain at the point of material accumulation.  As material reaches the unit and tilts it from the normally vertical position, a 38mm dia steel ball operates a single pole double-throw Micro-switch.  Tilt switches will detect high level material level in open stock piles and bins or control flow by stopping and starting conveyor equipment.

The body is made from corrosion resistant cast aluminium alloy.  Shaft and actuator at the bottom are made to client’s specification or can be supplied as shown with a 10mm dia stainless steel shaft and Polypropolene float.
