Level Monitoring Sensors
Wherever pressure switches or temperature sensors are today used as level monitoring elements, this sensor offers the advantage of indicating a critical condition far earlier.
BEDIA level monitoring sensors differ from float-type switches in their compact design and their resistance to vibration.
Since they contain no mechanical moving parts, their function will not be influenced by dirt particles or other influences. No electrical current is sent through the medium via an electrode with BEDIA sensors, an electrolysis of the medium is not possible.
The function of the sensor is based on the capacitive principle. It detects the change in capacitance that occurs when an electrode surrounded by air is immersed into a liquid medium.
The level monitoring sensors are designed for two different media types:
- For electrically conductive liquid media
(water, coolant, water/glycol mixture)
- For electrically non-conductive liquid media
(engine oil, fuels, hydraulic oil)
All BEDIA level monitoring sensors may be installed in any position.
