Press Release Summary:
Designed to resolve emergency generator failure issues stemming from coolant level sensor, CAP-300 uses capacitive technology, which is tolerant of coolant coating, and hasÂ sealedÂ (IP67, IP6K9K Approved) designÂ for consistent operational reliability. Sensor remains reliable in standby mode with nearly zero maintenance and is compatible with temperatures from -40 to +257Â°F. Other water-based coolant applications rangeÂ from remote power supplies to trucks, trains, and off-highway vehicles.
Original Press Release:
Capacitive Level Sensing for Rugged Coolant Applications
The power goes out, and the emergency generator starts - or does it?
Low coolant level is one of the most common reasons for emergency generator failure, and up until now the coolant level sensor has been a weak link - suffering residue build-up and electrical failure over the months or years the generator sits idle.
Now, Gems Sensors is happy to introduce the CAP-300, a new capacitive level sensor design based on input from leading OEMs for water-based coolant applications, from emergency generators, to remote power supplies, to trucks, trains, and off-highway vehicles.
The CAP-300 uses capacitive technology, which is tolerant of coolant coating, and has a durable sealed design (IP67, IP6K9K Approved) that allows it to work reliably, every time. It will remain reliable in standby mode with nearly zero maintenance, and is compatible with temperatures from -40°F (-40°C) to 257°F (125°C).
