Novel sensor detects water in fuel

28 August 2012

Gems has introduced a conductivity based sensor to detect the presence of water in fuel and lubricating oil. The WIF-1250 is an affordable, easy to install device that can be used to prevent mechanical damage as a result of lubricant property degradation in a variety of applications. 

The no-moving-parts sensor can be used with fuel filters, and in compressor crank cases to determine if water is present in the lubricating oil. It is enclosed within a nickel plated steel housing, along with its associated electronics, and will operate at temperatures up to 125°C. Both 1/4in and M12 mountings are available.

Output options are available to actuate relays, indicator lights or LEDs, as well as to interface with CMOS/TTL logic, PLCs or microprocessors.
