LSC52 Miniature Capacitance Level Switch

Brand: Intempco Controls, Inc.

The LSC52 is truly a high quality sensor, which can be used in harsh environments, for liquid level limit detection in metallic and non-metallic tanks containing electrically conductive or non-conductive liquids.

The probe, fitting and housing are constructed of stainless 316, the isolator is Teflon.

The LSC52 sensors feature built-in protection against reverse polarity, overvoltage and electrical shielding to deliver long-term reliability.

The output is relay SPDT which can be configured as either NO or NC or both NO and NC.
