Explains how sensors are used to increase vehicle safety, efficiency
Cincinnati, OH – May 8, 2014 — Standex Electronics, a leading manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting sensors and magnetic components worldwide, now offers an in-depth training module, Automotive Liquid Level Sensing, ideal for helping automotive design engineers explore what reed switches and sensors are, what they do, and how they are configured and used in automotive applications that require liquid level sensing. The module explains how reed sensors reliably monitor the level of a vehicle’s critical liquids such as brake fluid, oil, fuel, coolant, and windshield fluid level.
The liquid level sensing training module is supplied as part of Digi-Key’s PTM Online …On Demand%reg; product training modules. The easy to use presentation includes an audio narration along with simple diagrams and graphics that aid the learning process. Conveniently divided into 35 short segments, the read-at-your-own-pace is perfect for busy automotive design engineers who need to learn more about the many ways reed sensors are being used as essential elements of today’s vehicles.
Engineers learn about the basics of how reed sensors can be mounted, packaged, and configured to meet liquid sensing needs. Also covered is practical information on the different types of sensing technologies available. The training module delves deeply into how to use reed sensors in today’s automotive applications, providing detailed graphics illustrating how to choose the right sensor for each liquid sensing application by taking into consideration positioning, environment, and function within the vehicle. Reed sensors require no power when they are in their “off” or un-energized state, making them an ideal, energy-saving choice for modern vehicles.
