Industrial Optical Sensors

OPT Series: 8-30 vdc Industrial Optical Level Sensors optical-plastic-large

For industrial level sensor applications, optical sensors can be used to provide a switch output with no moving parts. This Polysulphone liquid level sensor provides a single point liquid level detection via a TTL compatible push-pull output designed for price sensitive OEM applications. The liquid sensor provides a low power signal, making these optical sensors ideal for microcontrollers, when needing to detect the absence or presence of clean liquids. An infrared LED and phototransistor ensures dependable optical coupling when the sensor is in air to prevent false readings. When the sensing tip is immersed in liquid, the phototransistor senses the liquid to switch the output state.

Sensor Cleaning and Compatibility

Clean with alcohol or Freon based solvents. DO NOT use chlorinated solvents such as tricholorethane which can affect the sensor surface. Check chemical compatibility chart before fluid installation.
