Level Switch with WirelessHART® from SOR Inc.

float operated level switch

The 1780 level switch from SOR® provides an innovative approach to level measurement that provides a truly wireless solution while maximizing battery life. 

(Lenexa, KS, USA – December 1, 2014) SOR Inc. is introducing a new float operated level switch that provides a truly wireless level monitoring solution for use on any WirelessHART mesh network.

The 1780 level switch uses a float mechanism similar to the one used in the 1710 compact level switch and 2210 side mounted level switch which moves a magnetic array inside a sealed housing. The movement of the magnetic array is then sensed through the housing by the position monitor via a Hall Effect Sensor. This creates a truly wireless solution with no wires required between the 1780 level switch and the position monitor.

The 1780 level switch is best suited for applications in the oil & gas, chemical and wastewater industries. It is also available with WirelessHART communication only or with an additional pneumatic relay output.

SOR is a global leader in the design and manufacture of measurement and control devices for oil & gas production, power generation, and the process industries. SOR manufactures a wide variety of electronic and mechanical instrumentation used for measuring pressure, level, temperature, and flow; along with maintaining an engineering and design team capable of providing engineered-to-order systems and products when required. With headquarters in Lenexa, KS and regional offices in Houston, Beaumont, Beijing, and Dubai, SOR Controls Group supports a network of sales and service personnel capable of addressing customer requirements in any geographic market around the world.
