Gill develops off-the-shelf liquid-level sensor
R-Series liquid-level sensor
Gill Sensors has introduced the R-Series precision off-the-shelf liquid-level sensor, developed for motorsport, military and industrial applications.
The sensor has no moving parts and utilises advanced capacitive technology to accurately monitor the liquid level.
Compatible with fuel, oil, water and other specialist liquids, the R-Series liquid-level sensor features an SAE five-bolt flange mount as standard and is manufactured to the customer's exact length requirement, avoiding the need for any mechanical adjustment by the customer.
With fully integrated electronics producing a configurable 0-5V analogue output, the R-Series is a suitable 'drop-in' solution for most liquid-level applications, according to the company.
In addition to the standard R-Series sensor, Gill Sensors has also introduced an Rxl variant of the sensor for applications where a very long sensor is required.
This variant of the R-Series utilises the same SAE five-bolt mounting pattern but introduces additional mechanical strengthening features to support the longer probe.
This sensor is suitable for industrial applications that require the precision liquid-level measurement of storage tanks up to 3m in depth.
The Gill Sensors range of miniature fuel-, oil- and coolant-level sensors incorporate micro-electronics making them especially suited to smaller unmanned systems applications.
Gill Sensors has launched a range of miniature fuel-, oil- and coolant-level sensors, planned for launch at AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America 2010.
