Contact and Non-contact Level Sensors usage in Different Industrial Verticals

Level Sensors technology is one of the major technologies which have application in major end user segments. These level sensors are classified into contact and non-contact level sensors. Earlier major level sensors were developed in mechanical and machine formats but with advent of microprocessors and microcontrollers these sensors are now embedded into small chips to collectively form Integrated Circuits (IC’s). Due to these IC’s upcoming level sensor technologies from non-contact category such as ultrasonic level sensor, microwave and guided wave radar level sensor are making their mark in the level sensor market. Hence it is evitable to forecast complete acceptance of the ongoing transition from contact type of measurement to non-contact type measurement. With Electronic and semiconductor industries efforts to scale down the average price of basic chips and circuits, and it is also predictable for the current non-contact level sensors technologies are affordable and better choice to shift from contact type level sensor technology over the period of five years. In addition to the price factor the benefits offered by these level sensors technologies are designed to perform in applications which operates in hazardous environments. In the current scenario, contact level sensor technologies are still dominant with technologies that are in use across various industrial segments such as magnetic float sensor and vibratory probe level.
