Water ingress switch / sensor

Intended for water level detection in cargo holds, ballast tanks, and dry spaces of bulk carriers. 

The GL-10 Water ingress switch / sensor is designed to meet the requirements in SOLAS Ch. XII, Reg. 12, IMO Res. MSC 145(77) and IACS UI SC 180 rev. 1.
The sensor design contains no moving parts and is very resistant to clogging from cargo. Output signal is a current trigger on a 4 to 20 mA-wire line. The sensor is delivered connected and moulded to a flexible PUR-cable and installed into a Ø60 mm steeltube with a length of 0.2 m.
