Electronic Sump Pump Switch with No Moving Parts

While basement floods are often attributed to pump failure, the problem is rarely the pump. The problem often stems from the switch responsible for the critical task of turning pumps on and off. Mechanical switches use moving parts, which are susceptible to wearing out over time or getting caught onto other pieces of equipment inside the pit, which is the leading source of a failure that results in a flooded basement.

Ion Technologies, a leading developer and supplier of high capacity pumps and backup systems, sought to provide an enhanced solution to such common switch failures. The result is the Ion Sensor Switch, which simply put, sparked a revolution in sump pump technology.  The Ion Sensor Switch utilizes extremely precise computer controlled pressure sensors to detect water levels, which allows it to turn electronically turn pumps on and off. Its solid state sensing technology has absolutely no moving parts, eliminating the break down commonly associated with standard float switches. The computer controls and logic board are protected by durable watertight housing and engineered for years of service. The switch allows for the removal of six inches of water per cycle, resulting in reduced pump cycles, which is instrumental since the most amount of wear and tear placed on pumps is on startup at the beginning of each cycle. The end result is a more capable pump switch that provides added reliability that helps prolong the average life of a pump.

The Ion Sensor Switch is integrated with the Ion Technologies line of sump pumps and battery backup systems. Contractors can provide their homeowners with a complete sump and battery backup system offering that utilizes the most innovative control technology to ensure optimum protection against the threat of rising water and a flooded basement. For replacing mechanical switches on existing pumps or systems, the Ion Digital Level Control Switch is also available for individual purchase.
