Are there any points to look out for when changing over from discontinued 61F-GP Floatless Level Controllers to substitute 61F-GP-N8?


61F-GP-N8 and 61F-GP differ in outer dimensions so the compatible Sockets and the mounting method will be different. This means that the Sockets must also be replaced, and the terminal arrangement will be reversed, so the wiring will have to be changed as well.



Reference Information:

The substitute 61F-GP-N8 can also be inserted into an existing 8PFA1 Sockets (with no wiring change necessary). However, when this done, the placement of 61F-GP-N8 itself becomes vertically reversed. 61F-GP-N8 will operate normally in this condition, but the Holders cannot be mounted to it. This means that it will have no protection against vibration.
