The Series PLS2 is an electromechanical level switch designed for level
monitoring of bulk materials. The rotating measuring vane is driven by a
brushless synchronous motor at one revolution per minute. As product
builds up the paddle rotation is impeded and the resulting motor torque
activates the output switch and stops the motor. A spring mechanism
reactivates the motor and returns the switch to normal state when the
material no longer impedes the paddle rotation. A torque adjusting
mechanism eliminates the need for different sized paddles. The PLS2 is
designed with the industry standard 1-1/4˝ male NPT connection and unit
can be side or top mounted.
FEATURES
• 3 sensitivity settings
• Top or side mountable
• Brushless synchronous motor: Assures long term reliability and
efficiency
• Motor shuts off when paddle stalls
• Screw cover: For easy access with no worries about losing bolts or
screws

INSTALLATION
The PLS2 should be mounted on the side or top of the tank or bin. The
conduit opening should be placed in a downward position, to protect from
moisture entering the unit through the conduit. When selecting a mounting
location, be sure the material can freely flow to and away from the shaft and
paddle. The shaft and paddle should also be out of the direct flow of material
as it fills the bin or tank. If it is necessary to mount in the flow stream, a
protective baffle should be installed on the inner wall of the bin.
MOUNTING PROCEDURE
Wiring
Make electrical connections per the wiring diagram for output switch options
selected. Wire in accordance with local codes. For hazardous locations, a
sealing fitting must be located within 18˝ of the control.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE SPRING FORCE
ASSEMBLY
MAINTENANCE/REPAIR
Upon final installation of the Series PLS2, no routine maintenance is
required. The Series PLS2 is not field serviceable and should be returned
if repair is needed. Field repair should not be attempted and may void
warranty.
WARRANTY/RETURN
Refer to “Terms and Conditions of Sales” in our catalog and on our website.
Contact customer service to receive a Return Goods Authorization number
before shipping the product back for repair. Be sure to include a brief
