Gems Sensors & Controls has introduced the new, miniature ELS-950M Series of Electro Optic Level Sensors (ELS). The ELS-950M Series expands on the existing ELS-950 product line with a brass housing to perform in harsh environments, maintain integrity in temperatures ranging from -40 °F to +230 °F and pressures to 250 psi.
ELS-950M liquid level sensors feature an over-molded electronics insert, TPE insulated wires, and a flurocarbon O-ring seal to create a watertight, environmentally resistant assembly. The ELS-950M is UL and CE approved to EMI standards and shock and vibration tested to MIL standards, IP66/67 and RoHS compliant. These sensors are available in 5 or 12 Vdc models with mounting options of -in. NPT, -in. "20UNF-2B or M12x1-8.
According to Gems, the compact size, durability, and low cost of the sensor are intended to create an option for liquid level applications in medical diagnostic equipment, sterilizers, washers, dialysis equipment; lubricant systems in machine tools, generator sets, on- or off-road vehicles; hydraulic fluid reservoirs; HVAC and refrigeration systems; radiators and fluid overflow containers and OEM food and beverage applications.
