Today’s automotive industry requires sensors for multiple applications in order to improve a vehicle’s safety and for more real time data and intelligence. Our sensors can be found in different mechanical and engine based applications.

Types of Automotive Sensors:

  • Temperature sensors
  • Water sensors
  • Fuel sensors

Reed Switches

Reed switches are commonly used within automotive sensor applications.

For liquid level measurements, an example of which would be for fuel tank level sensing, the Reed switch uses a magnetic float that adjusts with the liquid surface, actuating a hermetically sealed switch in the stem. This simple and comparatively low-maintenance design installs readily, minimizes shock, vibration, and pressure, and works with a variety of fluids, not just petrol.
