TwinSite® Switch

Application

Rochester TwinSite® switches are utilized where direct-reading plus electrical contact closure is required. Models are available to fit all Rochester Junior® and Senior® gauges with large magnets.

Note: Some applications require use only with intrinsically-safe circuits.

General Information & Features

These TwinSite® Switches use a conductive ink switch base in conjunction with a multi-fingered contact arrangement. This unique combination in the liquid level-gauge industry provides better inherent accuracy and reliability.

A typical switch would be open from full down to one-eighth and closed from one-eighth to empty.
