GN 656.1 Oil Level Indicators with Electrical Oil Level Monitoring, Lateral Plug


ELESA original design
code: HCV-E

Product description


With oil level indicators GN 656.1, the fluid level can not only be viewed, it can also be monitored using an electric contact.

A float with a magnet is located within the indication range which closes or opens a contact at a certain fluid level (REED switch).

The table values for the maximum allowable pressure are based on the use of mineral oil (according to ISO 3498) at a temperature of 23 °C. Use under different conditions will influence the compressive strength and requires prior consultation.
