Conductive Probe as Primary Level Sensor with Backup Float

Level Sensor Technologies Pt. 5 – Conductive Probes

Conductive probes make an excellent backup level sensing option in many applications, but are primarily used in municipal wastewater systems. Their functionality requires water to make contact with one of the points on the sensor to allow an electrical current to pass through and complete a circuit.

Submersible Pressure Transducer

Level Sensor Technologies Pt. 4 – Pressure Transducers

Pressure Transducers are incredible reliable sensors in pump station applications and are unaffected by many of the challenging conditions that impact other level sensors.

Level Sensor Technologies Pt. 3 – Radar

Radar level sensors do have a high cost, but they are extremely versatile and are suitable for many difficult operating conditions.
