The pump motor is switched on and it starts pumping water into the overhead tank if switch S3 is 'on'. As the water level in the tank rises the float of sensor 1 goes up. This shifts the moving contact of switch S1 to N/O position and trigger pin 2 of IC1 gets connected to 12V.
Regarding this, how does a water level controller work?
Water-level Controller. It switches on the pump when the water level in the overhead tank goes low and switches it off as soon as the water level reaches a pre-determined level. It also prevents 'dry run' of the pump in case water level in underground tank goes below suction level.
Also Know, how do you install a water level controller?
Put a layer of insulation tape on top of terminal blocks to avoid any contact of sensing cables with power terminal block. STEP 9. Put the Auto/Manual Switch of Level Controller to Manual Mode and them switch ON the Power. Operate the ON and OFF button of the starter to Confirm that the motor is working in Manual Mode.
What is automatic pump control?
Definition of automatic pump control. The starting and stopping of a pump by a mechanism actuated by the level of water in the suction well or pump, or by the level or pressure of water in a discharge tank.
How do I control the water level in my tank?
The current water level in a water tower tank is being manually maintained using an analog gauge that is mon- itoring head pressure, and a simple on/off motor con- troller for the pump. This type of control is useful in maintaining water levels in tanks, landscaping ponds, waterfalls, and many other applications.
