Lightweight, catch tank oil level sensor

Lightweight, catch tank oil level sensor

Originally designed for the ACO Le Mans Racing Series, the oil catch tank sensor is based on Gill’s proven capacitive level sensor technology.

Because of the length of an endurance race, the ACO has to be confident the sensor will remain accurate, reliable and repeatable over the course of the race, providing a continuous analogue output relative to the level of oil within the catch tank. This is important as the sensor was introduced to prevent overfilling which leads to spillage and unsafe racing.

Weighing just 90 grams with two 3mm diameter mounting holes for simple installation, the sensor builds on the success of the pit-tank level sensors installed in refuelling rigs for the Le Mans 24 Hours race.
