  • Application: SME Fluid Level, Pressure, and Flow Sensors
    The desire for more information and convenience, along with worldwide water and energy conservation initiatives, has led to a flurry of new fluid level magnetic and conductive sensor designs. Appliances are the number one adopter of the technology, with HVAC (condensate level sensing
  • SME Capabilities & Solutions - Why SME Fluid Level Sensors
    In the past, fluid level sensors provided a simple. on/off signal, but now sensors are being called upon to supply a great deal more information. The trend towards increased control circuits begin employed in both residential and in industrial device application monitoring is driving the need
  • A Dozen Ways to Measure Fluid Level and How They Work
    The demands of sophisticated automated processing systems, the need for ever-tighter process control, and an increasingly stringent regulatory environment drive process engineers to seek more precise and reliable level measurement systems. Improved level measurement accuracy makes it possible
  • Application: Automobile Brake Fluid Level Sensor (.pdf)
    Designing a sensing system for under the hood of a vehicle presents difficult requirements. The sensor must operate at extreme temperatures that are as low as -40°C and as high as 125°C.
  • Application: Multi-Point Hot Fluid Liquid Level Sensor (.pdf)
    There are several laboratory fluid systems that required fluid level monitoring to help control very elaborate equipment processes. This new float sensor has four sensing positions, three of which are dedicated to monitoring hot fluid levels, and the fourth to sense a low fluid level cutoff point
  • Level sensors go floatless
    elements periodic along the direction of propagation of the wave. Most SEF sensors use a flat conductor in a serpentine pattern. But the shape can also be a helix, radial spiral, or other configurations when the sensors measure other properties besides fluid level. An additional screen conductor
  • Application: Automobile Brake Float Level Sensor (.pdf)
    When applying one's foot to the brake pedal, it is taken for granted that the braking mechanism will begin to slow or stop the vehicle. A hermetically sealed reed switch plays a key reliability role by monitoring that the brake fluid level is maintained at its proper level. Low brake fluid level
  • Switch Tips: Float-level switches
    Float-type switches are considered the least-expensive way of monitoring the level of fluid in a tank. They use a buoyant float to gauge a fluid level. In most models, the float carries permanent magnets and encircles a stationary stem. As the float rises or drops with fluid level, the magnetic
