Point Level Switches – Why are they the product of choice over conventional level switches?

Point level switches are used to detect when a liquid has reached a predefined level. They are designed to detect the presence or absence of a fluid at a specific point. This type of technology is ideal for liquid measurements where monitoring intermediate levels is not important. Point level switches are typically used to control... Read more

SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) Emissions System, what sensor do I need?

An SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system is a system installed on diesel vehicles to reduce harmful Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions. It works by injecting an automotive grade urea, or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) through a specially designed catalyst, into the exhaust stream of a diesel engine. The Diesel Exhaust Fluid sets off a chemical reaction... Read more
