Water Detection Sensors

Posted on July 27, 2012

Gems Sensors & Controls has launched a new conductivity based sensor to detect the presence of water in fuel and lubricating oil. The new WIF-1250 sensor can be used with fuel filters, compressor crank cases, lubricating oil tanks and diesel fuel storage tanks.

It is constructed of nickel plated steel for compatibility with temperatures up to 257°F and was designed for easy installation. It can be mounted in any position.

The sensor contains integral, high-temperature-rated electronics that generate an alternating voltage to a probe tip. Output options vary and can be used to actuate relays, indicator lights or LEDs, as well as to interface with CMOS/TTL logic, PLCs or microprocessors.

The sensor is available in ¼ in. NPT and M12 mountings and is CE and RoHs approved.
