UNPACKING
Unpack the instrument carefully. Make sure all components have been removed from the foam protection. Inspect all components for damage. Report any concealed damage to the carrier within 24 hours. Check the contents of the carton/crates against
the packing slip and report any discrepancies to Magnetrol. Check the nameplate model number to be sure it agrees with the
packing slip and purchase order. Check and record the serial number for future reference when ordering parts.
These units are in conformity with the provisions of:
1. Directive 2014/34/EU for equipment or protective system intended for use in potentially explosive
atmospheres. EC-type examination certificate number ISSeP09ATEX024X (Ex d units; applied standards IEC60079-0:2011 and EN 60079-1:2007).
2. The PED directive 97/23/EC (pressure equipment directive). Safety accessories per category IV module H1.

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
Figures 1 & 2 illustrate the simple, reliable operating principle of a float level switch. Switching action is obtained
through the use of a magnetic sleeve (4) and a float (3), displacer or flow sensing element and a switching mechanism (2). These two basic component assemblies are sep2

arated by a non-magnetic, pressure tight enclosing tube
(5). The switch (2) and magnet (1) are assembled to a
mechanism with a swinging arm which operates on precision stainless steel pivots.
As level of a liquid in a vessel rises (Figure 1), the float rides
on the liquid surface moving the magnetic sleeve upward
in the enclosing tube and into the field of the switch mechanism magnet. As a result, the magnet is drawn in tightly
to the enclosing tube moving the switch adjusting screw
and allowing the activating arm of the snap switch to
move, making or breaking the electrical circuit. As the liquid level recedes (Figure 2), the float and magnetic sleeve
moves downward until the switch magnet releases and is
drawn outward, away from the enclosing tube by a tension
spring. This in turn allows the activating arm of the snap
switch to move, thus reversing switch action.
Switch mechanisms may include a single switch or multiple switches, depending on operational requirements and
switching action desired.
DESCRIPTION
Magnetrol mechanical level controls are available with snap-action micro switches, hermetically sealed in a positively pressurized capsule for extended switch mechanism and contact life.

MOUNTING
Replacing the complete switch mechanisms
CAUTION: Before attempting to remove a switch mechanism, be certain to pull disconnect switch or otherwise
assure that electrical circuit through control is de-energized.
1. Remove the switch housing cover (see page 6 and up).
2. Disconnect wiring from supply side of terminal block on switch mechanism. Note and record lead wire
terminal locations.
3. Loosen clamp screw in mounting clamp until mechanism slides freely on enclosing tube, refer to Figure 4.
4. Slide switch mechanism off of enclosing tube. If mechanism is to be reused, ensure that it is placed on a clean surface,
free of metallic particles that may be attracted to the switch magnet.
5. Loosen mounting screw so that switch frame will fit over e-tube. Install switch mechanism by sliding it over the enclosing tube. Slide mechanism down until the bottom of the frame and terminal block are resting on the switch spacer or
washer. The switch spacer or washer should be resting on the hub of the housing base.
6. Tighten the mechanism clamp screw so that the mechanism is firmly clamped to the enclosing tube.
7. Reattached supply-side wiring to the terminal block.
8. Reinstall the switch housing cover (see page 6 and up).
9. Reconnect power supply and test switch action under operating conditions.

WIRING
Circuits shown are for direct-acting level switches and are reversed in side mounting float-in-tank models, which
utilize a reversing float pivot.

1. Rising level closes contacts 1 & 2, see Figure 5.
1. Rising level closes contacts 4 & 5 and 1 & 2, see
Figure 6.
2. Falling level closes contacts 2 & 3.
2. Falling level closes contacts 5 & 6 and 2 & 3.
3. Wiring Diagram is reversed (high level actuation
becomes low level actuation, etc.) when this switch
mechanism is used on side mounted float switches
employing a reversing pivot (Models B40, T52, T62, T63,
T64, etc.).

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Inspect switch mechanisms, terminals and connections regularly. Proof test interval to be determined by application requirements (required reliability, operating conditions, site requirements, etc).
Inspect switch mechanisms, terminals and connections
1. DO NOT operate your control with defective or maladjusted switch mechanisms.
2. Level controls may sometimes be exposed to excessive heat or moisture. Under such conditions, insulation on electrical
wiring may become brittle, eventually breaking or peeling away. The resulting “bare” wires can cause short circuits.
NOTE: Check wiring carefully and replace at the first sign of brittle insulation.
3. Vibration may sometimes cause terminal screws to loosen. Check all terminal connections to be certain that screws are tight.
NOTE: Spare switches should be kept on hand at all times.

IMPORTANT
SERVICE POLICY
Owners of Magnetrol products may request the return of a control; or, any part of a control for complete rebuilding or
replacement. They will be rebuilt or replaced promptly. Magnetrol International will repair or replace the control, at no cost to
the purchaser, (or owner) other than transportation cost if:
a. Returned within the warranty period; and,
b. The factory inspection finds the cause of the malfunction to be defective material or workmanship.
If the trouble is the result of conditions beyond our control; or, is NOT covered by the warranty, there will be charges for labour
and the parts required to rebuild or replace the equipment.
In some cases, it may be expedient to ship replacement parts; or, in extreme cases a complete new control, to replace the
original equipment before it is returned. If this is desired, notify the factory of both the model and serial numbers of the
control to be replaced. In such cases, credit for the materials returned, will be determined on the basis of the applicability of
our warranty.
No claims for misapplication, labour, direct or consequential damage will be allowed.
RETURNED MATERIAL PROCEDURE
So that we may efficiently process any materials that are returned, it is essential that a “Return Material Authorisation” (RMA)
form will be obtained from the factory. It is mandatory that this form will be attached to each material returned. This form is
available through Magnetrol’s local representative or by contacting the factory. Please supply the following information:
1. Purchaser Name
2. Description of Material
3. Serial Number and Ref Number
4. Desired Action
5. Reason for Return
6. Process details
Any unit that was used in a process must be properly cleaned in accordance with the proper health and safety standards
applicable by the owner, before it is returned to the factory.
A material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must be attached at the outside of the transport crate or box.
All shipments returned to the factory must be by prepaid transportation. Magnetrol will not accept collect shipments.
All replacements will be shipped Ex Works.
