Features and Benefits

FEATURES

  • Reverse polarity, ESD and transient over-voltage protected
  • Wide supply voltage range
  • Push-pull output, capable of sinking or sourcing up to 100mA, can directly drive small loads
  • Optional fail-safe PWM output
  • Standard and extended temperature ranges available
  • Polysulfone or Trogamid housing material options
  • Internal or external mounting options
  • High pressure option available

BENEFITS

  • Solid state so no moving parts to cause unreliability
  • Small in size so they can be installed in applications where space is limited
  • Can detect tiny amounts of liquid when positioned correctly, ideal for leak detection
  • Fast response time
  • Repeatable switching point
  • Built-in output delays available on request for applications where sloshing causes intermittent switching
  • Very robust permitting use in a wide range of fluids and chemicals


OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Liquid sensing 001_450

When in air the infrared light is reflected back to the detector

 

Liquid sensing 002_450

When in liquid the infrared light is refracted and the output switches
