Custom Products

The customised solutions below were designed in response to customer demand.

Whether that be adding or modifying electronics and software, changing outputs, adapting housing or thread styles, adding cabling, connectors or environmental protection, SST consider all options to ensure we satisfy the customers’ requirements. SST’s application engineers work directly with our customers’ engineers to provide complete application and technical support in order to develop customised solutions that will meet their exact specifications.

Application: Coolant header tank in mobile construction equipment
Environment: Exposure to high vibration with a lot of movement over harsh outdoor terrain
Connector: Packard automotive connector
Special Output: Failures such as broken wires can be detected by setting the high or low output voltage set between the supply and 0V
Vs = 5VDC
Output high = ~4VDC
Output low = ~1.5VDC
Custom Housing: ¼” NPT thread, stainless steel housing
Required for the high torque fixing to the tank where plastic housings may crack or shear
Application: Dual fuel system on board commercial vehicles
Sensor in the diesel condensate trap on CNG powered vehicles indicates when there is a high level
of diesel in filter bowl, meaning that it should be emptied at the next service opportunity
Environment: Exposure to diesel fuel, high vibration and high pressures
(>120bar burst pressure)
Connector: ISO 15170 3-pin automotive connector
Special Output: PWM output signal: failsafe option which indicates if sensor has failed or the connecting cable is damaged
Additional electrical Spec: Transient over voltage protected input and short-circuit protected output
Custom Housing: M14x1.5 thread, 303 stainless steel housing, polysulphone tip
Application: Underwater gear box. Sensor is submersed 90% of the time
Tip of sensor is in a gear box to indicate low oil level and prevent a run-dry scenario
Environment: Rear end of the sensor and cable termination is in salt water,
wire will be occasionally moving
Connector: AMP Superseal 1.5 Series Connector
Cable: 1m of 3-core cable with specially selected jacket material suitable for
use in sea water, fuels and oil with protective corrugated outer tubing
Output: High in air output to the ECU of a boat
Application: Coolant level sensor in the radiator of an engine for off-highway
vehicles and generators.
Replacement of a 242985 GEMS capacitive level sensor
Environment: Up to 125 degrees Celsius, high vibration, movement of
reservoir and sloshing of liquid occur
Connector: Integral 3-pin Deutsch DT04-3P connector
Output: N-Type, Low in Air (GEMS “Dry Sink” equivalent); programmed with
actuation delay of 5 seconds for use in moving liquids
Custom Housing: ½” NPT thread with brass housing
Application: Automated cleaning/maintenance machine for specialist medical
tools.
Monitoring water and oil levels during processes for external sterilization and internal gear lubrication.
SST performed a fast turnaround project to create a drop-in replacement of another company’s obsolescent sensor.
Environment: Retrofit into a very small space and designed to be a
drop-in replacement for an obsolete sensor
Connector: JST connector with short cable, all standardised to customer’s
requirements and connections
Output: Special high-in-air configuration and designed to allow operation
close to reflective surfaces
Custom Housing / Electronics: Entire design of electronics and housing had to be shortened. This affected both the PCB and housing designs
