Hi All

I am working on a small project, where there is a float switch, which passes either the live or neutral AC connection. At this stage, i am not as I am waiting for a wiring diagram.

But if it is AC, is it possible to detect the status of the float?

I am thinking, maybe we could use simple AC relay switch or is there somthing more appropiate?

You could use an AC relay or an AC optocoupler to aquire status.
