MODEL LC-1 (Tank Level Control)

The combination of any two Harwil liquid level switches and an electronic control module mounted in a weather-resistant box provide a ready-to-go system for the automatic filling or emptying of tanks or vessels.

System is composed of:

  • Electronic Latching/Unlatching Control Module
  • Special electronic module design eliminates false starts due to turbulent wave action.
  • Nema 4 weather resistant box with two standard 1/2? seal tight flexible conduit fittings.
  • A secondary 10 amp SPDT relay output is also provided.
  • Color coded with ring and labeled terminal strip.
  • 120 or 240 VAC 50/60 Hz models available.
  • 30 amp DPST motor contactor output for driving 1 1/2 (120 VAC)/3 HP (240 VAC) pumps.

Choose from any two Harwil liquid level switch models.

  • Models for clean or contaminated fluids such as water, sea water, sewage, thin slurries, contaminated ground water, etc.
  • Models for strong acids, bases, hydrocarbons, alcohols, inorganics, ketones, esters or ethers.
  • Each system is provided with a complete, descriptive parts list and an installation and wiring diagram for both level switches and control module.
  • Maintenance and check out requires only a standard multimeter.
  • LC-1 Control Module is delivered pre-wired and is ready to hook-up to control your liquid level.
