Pacific Sensor Technologies offer the BM45 pressure switch for bin and silo level measurement. The BM45 is a pressure switch that provides simple, low cost point level control in bin and silos with proven reliability. The BM45 pressure switch is designed for use in bins containing non-hazardous, free-flowing dry materials such as grain, feed, seed or other granular or pelleted materials.
The BM45 pressure switch, available from Pacific Sensor Technologies, operates by sensing material pressing against the diaphragm switch. When the switch is pressed, it activates a sensitive micro-switch that can be wired to a visual (light) or audible (horn or bell) alarm to start or stop a process or alert to high, medium or low levels in bins.
The BM45 series is offered in six different models. The variations include standard, heavy-duty neoprene or heavy-duty silicone diaphragm material and either internal or external mounting options. The basic, yet reliable operating mechanism is rugged and requires minimal maintenance.
The BM45 pressure switch can be used in conjunction with Bin Master's point level alarm panel, which is a console used to alert the user to bin level conditions for 4 to 24 level indicator stations. The BM45 pressure switch saves time by allowing the user to monitor high, medium and low levels of multiple bins from a single console.
