This horizontal float switch from PMD Way is ideal for detecting changes in water levels in a vessel. For example, by mounting it in side of a vessel, your system can detect when the liquid has reached that level. There is no mercury in the unit so it is safe for fresh or saltwater tanks. A pair of pre-tinned 38 cm wires are prefitted to the switch.
The switch is not designed for directly switching mains current, instead consider it as a replacement for a simple low voltage, low current push button.
We are obliged to mention that this is not a "food grade" product, however would be fine for rainwater tanks.
