Liquid Level Sensors target electronics/semiconductors.

Press Release Summary:

Balluff SmartLevel(TM) sensors provide real-time level readings regardless of amount of film, foaming, material buildup, multiple ingredients, or any extraneous metallic material in solution. They can operate directly in contact with media or indirectly through glass or plastic tank walls up to 12 mm thick. Automatically self-adjusting to correct liquid level, sensors do not require cleaning or maintenance.

Balluff Introduces Revolutionary Aqueous Liquid Level Detection Sensors Perfect for Electronic and Semiconductor Applications

Florence, KY - April 24, 2009 - Finding true level in electronic and semiconductor applications offers unique challenges. Now, for the first time, Balluff ( SmartLevel(TM) sensors accurately detect true aqueous levels regardless of film, foaming, material buildup, or multiple ingredients in the solution. This means that with its revolutionary capacitive sensing circuitry, Balluff SmartLevel ( sensors will provide real time accurate level readings regardless of the amount of extraneous metallic material in the solution either directly in contact with the media or indirectly through glass or plastic tanks walls up to 12 mm thick.

SmartLevel(TM) sensors are simple to install and require no teach-in procedures. They also automatically self-adjust to the correct liquid level for true "mount-it-and-forget-it" convenience.

In virtually all applications, Balluff SmartLevel(TM) sensors never need cleaning. For the first time, a capacitive sensor can operate accurately for an indefinite period of time without false triggering, regardless of material build-up on the sensor or in or on the container.
