VERSA-SWITCH® MODEL VS5100
Premium Flow/Level/Temperature Switch

  • Simple field adjustable thermal differential switch for mass flow, level, and/or temperature of liquids or gasses with time delay adjustable from 0 to 300 sec.
  • Wide operating temperature range -100°F to +850°F (-70°C to +458°C).
  • User configurable operating power 110VAC, 220VAC, or 24VDC.
  • Removable, plug in electronics.
  • Can be configured with 2 independent outputs, such as level or mass flow with temperature or two mass flow rates.
  • Level response time of .1 to 1 second on wetting, media dependent
  • Flow response time of .5 to 10 seconds, media dependent
  • Can be used for either gas or liquid applications including interface detection.
  • Self heating sensor design improves repeatability. No separate heater to fail or slow response time.
  • Two Year Workmanship Warranty
