Tuning Fork Level Switch

How does the tuning fork level switch work?
The tuning fork of the level switch vibrates, due to the resonance of piezoelectric crystal. When the tuning fork is immersed into a liquid or bulk solid, there will be a sharp reduction in vibration amplitude; and the phase and frequency changes accordingly. The changes will be detected by internal electronic circuit, and finally converted into a switching signal.

HGYYK series tuning fork level switch offers a great solution for tank level monitoring, control and alarm, and it is compatible with a variety of materials including liquids, powders, and granular solids.

3 input modes: 24V DC, 110V AC or 220V AC
3 output modes: direct current output, relay contact output, current voltage output
All the types are available with high and low limit alarms and optional switch sensitivity.
