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.
Titan Enterprises has been involved in the development of a disposable flow sensor for CRISI Medical Systems (based in San Diego, US), a subsidiary of Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD). Titan Enterprises assisted CRISI in the early days of development of the flow sensor used in the BD Intelliport, a medication management system for manual intravenous (IV) bolus injections.
Measuring the temperature of molten metal in a foundry can be a slow and disruptive process. The use of disposable dip thermocouples can be both expensive and hazardous. The Meltmaster device from Land Instruments is claimed to be fast, accurate and easy to use and does not contact the liquid metal.
The SWB ranges of switch boxes from Sensonics are designed for on-site monitoring or data collection of up to 60 channels of vibration or temperature.
