Depending on the mounting position, the float on these switches can either rise or lower
with the liquid level. By rotating the switch 180, the switch operation can be Normally
Open or Normally Closed.
When the switch is mounted
so that the float rises with the
When the switch is mounted liquid level, the switch is N.C.
so that the float lowers with the
liquid level, the switch is N.O.
