Operating Principle

Orbit-Lite has a synchronous motor that drives the shaft connected to the rotating paddle. The motor is connected to the spring &. When the application media covers the blades, a mechanism attached to the spring actuates a micro-swtich. The actuated micro-switch provides a potential-free contact output via the terminals. When material uncovers the rotating paddle, the tension in spring is released, which also releases micro-swtich.


Grain Handling

Grain handling and management is necessary to remove contaminants to keep stored grain in good condition. This process involves handling bulk materials that require rigid level gauges to withstand durable conditions. The overall process is time consuming.

To deal with these types of conditions, rotary type level switch with rope probe versions can be used that are suitable for longer-length tanks and hoppers.

Plastic Industry

Plastic industry is the largest consumed used for packaging and bottling in the large amount by recycling the waste plastic.Plastic is used in almost each sector, including to produce packaging,building and construction and many more.The manufacturing process of these industries undergoes an automated operation that does not afford to stop at any point of time.

The rotary paddle level switch is unified with the fault detection technique which continuously checks the condition of the motor and indicates when the motor stops working.

Man-Made Fibre

Companies that makes the technology for man-made fibre constantly innvoate for the market by responding to demands and changes in the business.Fibres are those substances that have a wide variety of applications in our day-to-day life

The rotary paddle level switch is integrated with a spring-type sensitivity arrangement to facilitate the selection of different sensitivity values as per the application media density.
