Product details

Kemo Water Level Indicator

• Remote Sensing up to 100 m
• Battery-powered level indicator for measuring the liquid level of water tanks such as rainwater, sewage chambers or slurry tanks
• After touching the button, indication occurs via 10 LEDs in steps of 10% each
• The device is earmarked for wall assembly
• With extension also possible to use it for bigger measurements (e.g. dwell)

Battery-powered level indicator for measuring the liquid level of water tanks such as rainwater, sewage chambers or slurry tanks from a distance of up to 100 m. After touching the button, indication occurs via 10 LEDs in steps of 10% each (indication 10 - 100%). The device is earmarked for wall assembly (approx. 131 x 78 x 36 mm) and requires 2 batteries „AA (Maplin Code: L43AL).

Connection is made via terminals inside the device. A normal signal cable (telephone cable, control wire or the like) with at least 11 cores is necessary to connect your water tank with the level indicator (cable is not included). You may also employ cables with less cores, but then it will not be possible to use all indication steps (e.g. with 8 cores only 7 LED indication steps may be used, which is, however, often sufficient).
Technical Data
Operating voltage 3 V (2 AA batteries, not attached)
Display max. 10 LEDs and 1 LED for the battery control
Measuring points in the water tank 1 - 10, switchable
Current consumption during the measurement (button is pushed) max. 120 mA if all LEDs light up
Max. cable length between the level indicator and water tank 100 m
Required cable to the water tank telephone cable or similar cable with at least 11 cores
Measuring current at the water tank probe approx. 50 µA per channel
Dimensions approx. 131 x 78 x 36 mm
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective water level meter Used water level meter wired with two lengths of 6 core alarm cable to give enough cable cores for contacts for the level sensor which I fabricated from a plastic tube. Works well when used for caravan aquaroll level measurement.

Ok how do I attach the `signal wires` to a tank and what sensor sends the water level back to the indicator
