Series PLS Paddle Level Switch

Series DBLM Mini-Bin Dry Bulk Level Monitor

Compact, 4-Vane Paddle

The Model DBLM Mini-Bin Dry Bulk Level Monitor provides reliable level sensing for dry bulk solids where mounting space is limited. Model DBLM Mini-Bin operates by using a 1 rpm synchronous motor to rotate a four vane, plastic paddle, and when material surrounds paddle and impedes rotation, the motor is de-energized and triggers a SPDT snap switch. Mount the Mini-Bin with optional 1-1/4" to 3/4" reducer to replace standard size units.

Agency Approvals:


  • Compact, side mount control reports high, intermediate, and low level conditions, eliminating overflows, choking, clogs or empty vessels
  • Unaffected by the dielectric constant of the sensed material, making it superior to a capacitance level switch for applications where the dielectric constant is too low, where there is more than one material being used in one vessel, and when material moisture content can change
