The WIF-1250 from Gems Sensors & Controls Inc., Plainville, CT, is a conductivity-based sensor to detect the presence of water in fuel and lubricating oil. The sensor's integral, high-temperature-rated electronics generate an alternating voltage to a probe tip; the presence of water completes the circuit and changes the condition of the transistor output. Operating temperature is up to 125°C. Various output options are available and can be used to actuate relays, indictor lights, or LEDs, and interface with CMOS/TTL logic, PLCs, or microprocessors. The device can also be used with fuel filters and in compressor crank cases.
