Pacific Sensor Technologies  BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches has been designed to provide security from system power failure, easy access to all components, and reliability through advanced circuitry.

Principle of operations:

The Pacific Sensor Technologies BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches have few moving parts and features simple and dependable operation. A slow speed synchronous motor rotates a paddle, which senses the presence of material at the level where the BMRX is placed.

At a high level control the Pacific Sensor Technologies BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches rotates continually when the material is not present.

When the material reaches the paddle, the resistance causes the motor to de-energise. This promptly causes the relay to change status and automatically shut-off any process system wired to the relay.

As a low level control the paddle is stopped and the motor is de-energised when material is present. When material drops below the paddle the motor energises and the paddle starts rotating. This causes the relay to change status and automatically start-up any process system wired to the relay.

The Pacific Sensor Technologies BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches has the following applications:

The Pacific Sensor Technologies BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches is designed for controlling dry bulk material storage and flow in bins, hoppers, tanks, chutes and conveyors.

Typical applications include feed, cement, grain, plastics, aggregates and wood products.

The Pacific Sensor Technologies BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches can be used in materials with a bulk density as low as 2 lb/ft³ (30 kg/m³).

By managing material storage and flow with the BMRX, you prevent bin overflows, empty conditions, clogged chutes and jammed conveyors. This eliminates costly spills, material waste and unnecessary down time.

The Pacific Sensor Technologies BMRX range of rotary paddles level switches is simple. Rugged, reliable and has the following features:

  • Triple thread screw-off cover, no more bolts
  • DPDT relay output, high/low fail-safe, removable terminals
  • Field adjustable sensitivity, dual conduit entrance
  • Hazardous approvals, built-in motor slip clutch
  • De-energised motor, wetted parts are all stainless steel, powder coat finish, available in multiple voltages, four bearing design for greater shaft stability
