FIELD EFFECT SENSING
METHODE’S FLUID LEVEL SENSOR TECHNOLOGY
Eliminate mechanical float switch failures by engaging TouchSensor on your next fluid level sensing application.
Designed to operate in various water based applications and using Field Effect technology Methode’s Fluid Level Sensor Technology is yet another innovative milestone that can sense through glass, plastic or any other non-conductive type of material up to 10mm of thickness.
Whether it’s a water reservoir in a coffee maker, a bilge pump in a boat, or a home sump pump, TouchSensor provides fluid level sensing solutions for a variety of custom and standard applications utilizing our patented Field-Effect technology.
Since their introduction in 1997, Field-Effect sensor technology has been successfully used in a wide variety of consumer applications with over 160 million units sold. In fluid level sensing applications, they have become the de facto standard in marine and recreational vehicle applications where fluid sensing, control, and monitoring are a critical need. Field-Effect has earned the recognition in the harshest environments as a proven, reliable, solid-state switching technology.
