M5600 Float Switch


SKU: FLT006 Category:


  • Larger, beefier version of M5000; stainless steel float switch for general purpose use
  • Heavy duty but lightweight – higher wattage rating than our other switches
  • Better in corrosive applications than polypropylene – works in high temps (ex. boiling water)
  • 24 inch leads (22 gauge Teflon wire)
  • ¼” NPT mounting – does not come with a nut
  • Don’t use in heavy duty applications like sewage pumps
  • Great for:
    • corrosive environments
    • boiling water, steam
