Wiring a float switch isn’t necessarily hard, but it can be a little confusing if you don’t have a visual aid or two. Remember that what you’re wiring is a means of turning things on and off. Thinking carefully about when you want something off, and when it should turn on, will help you as you visualize the wiring and apply the schematic to real world control.

We’re going to look at a progression of straightforward pump control arrangements using float switches. We’ll look at single and double switch arrangements and how to wire them, and then look at equivalent circuits using Kari series float switches.

Choosing The Right Kari Float Switch

underwater view of new kari float switchKari float switches are the most innovative cable suspended float switches on the market, and they were invented back in 1965! And that’s more than just a sales pitch. The floats can contain up to four mechanical switches with over 20 different control and alarm configurations.

So with all these switch combinations and control configurations, the only hard part about buying one is the selection process. Hence, this helpful article all about choosing the right Kari to make all your wildest dreams come true – at least the float switch related ones.
