Original Press Release:

PMC/KA Introduces a New Oil Contamination & Temperature Sensor Model KMS

The KMS Oil Contamination & Temperature Sensor is a very affordable device designed to detect the presence of ferrous material in oil systems. This small stainless steel sensor weighs just 1.4oz and has a diameter of 0.85".

The sensor can be used to monitor gearbox and transmission oil for signs of gear wear and effectively provide early warning of potential damage or premature failure. Parts such as gears and pump impeller can be prone to extreme wear.

Construction is stainless steel incorporating a powerful magnet which attracts ferrous material to the extended tip of the sensor. The built-in amplifier provides a 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc output proportional to the quantity of material detected and based on a 0 -100% scale. An integrated temperature sensor assists with the oil condition monitoring.
