Hi Kevin
I'm using 2 of your float switches to connectto a break out box. Question is which wire is +? the one with the stripes or the one with the lettering?
Also when the wire is facing up and the float is down is the switch open?
Thanks
PS Thanks for the refund on the extra postage.

Hi Dave,

Either lead can be considered positive; the switch closes and completes the circuit when the float is up against the hex flange on the threaded end of the switch.

The switch is most suited to low voltage DC and low current, although I believe it is rated for AC voltage and up to a couple amps. I can look at the drawings to give you exact specifications tomorrow if you need them.

Talk to you later,
Kevin
