It's no surprise that an automobile requires many forms of fluid to keep it running smoothly and to maintain the life of the vehicle. A critical fluid level can cause serious to permanent damage to a vehicle's engine. Cars are equipped with many liquid level sensors which monitor these fluid level conditions. Reed sensors generally become the design-in choice of most engineers when encountering wet, dirty, wide operating temperature ranges. Reed sensors continue to be selected for liquid level detection because of their favorable characteristics and versatile design capabilities over the other technologies. Furthermore, the reed sensor has accurate closure and opening points that represent a crucial factor in consistent reliable operation over a long period of time. Reed sensors can easily be designed for variations in closure and opening that naturally result with changes in float position due to changes in the fluid’s specific gravity.
