Description: Engineering Principle Major components of the AccuStar Fluid Level Sensor are the housing, float, springs, a samarium cobalt magnet, and the Hall Effect sensor. The springs attach the float to the outside housing through three helical leaves. The spring rate of the helical springs is relatively low in an axial direction. However, they are very stiff in a radial direction. This prevents the float from making contact with the outside housing. Another unique feature of the design is the capability to calibrate the sensor to best meet the operating parameters of each application. Calibrations include trimming the strength of the magnet to provide the correct output for the specific fluid level conditions being measured. With the addition of selected resistors on the printed circuit board we are also able to calibrate for mechanical tolerances, buoyancy of the float, and tolerances associated with the Hall Effect device. Gain and null adjusts on the chip itself enable us to further trim and customize the sensor to your application.
