How does it work? When an alarm condition is sensed by Level Alert, an audible alarm sounds and a message pad flashes to inform the user why the alarm has sounded. A reset push-button silences the audible alarm. Thereafter, the message pad(s) remain illuminated until the alarm condition has been corrected. Should another channel(s) sense an alarm condition, the audible alarm will again sound and the corresponding message pad will flash until reset/acknowledged by the operator.
Level Alert Alarms are designed to activate upon receipt/loss of continuity* (N.O. or N.C. contact), voltage** input (24, 115 VAC or DC) or 4-20mA*** low/high current loop status. This flexibility permits universal application. Uehling Type "S", Bar Graph and Digital Tank-O-Meters®, Digital Pressure Gauges, Float Switches, etc., may be used to activate Level Alert Alarms. Each channel has an output relay for actuating other relays, pumps, valves, etc.
Additional setpoints may be added via Setpoint Controllers. Each controller adds (2) setpoints (SPDT 10 amps @ 115 VAC, non-inductive). Up to (4) controllers may be added to provide up to (8) additional setpoints.
Level contactors may also be used alone or retrofitted to existing systems.

(Specify with order)
|Trips upon contact closure/continuity* (default setting), AC or DC voltages**, DC Current 4-20 mA*** loop status (low/high). Each channel is individually configurable for N.O. (Default) or N.C. via jumpers.|
|Output Relays:||4 SPDT dry contact relays. Each channel simultaneously actuates a relay when message pad is illuminated. (0.5 amps @ 115 VAC, non-inductive; 1 amp @ 30 VDC.)|
|*Continuity circuits require no external power source, simplify wiring, are economical and useful for applications where the use of power is undesirable or may present a hazard.|
|**AC or DC Voltage inputs are particularly useful for applications where the input simultaneously actuates more than one device or relay.|
|***DC Current (4-20 mA loop status: high/low) provide the ability to monitor a device output continuously with high immunity to induced electrical interference.|
