Driving an automobile is a pretty simple function for most drivers licensed to be behind the wheel. As long as a vehicle is well maintained, all that’s needed is a simple turn of the key to be on the way. But what happens under the hood is a system of connected parts and technologies that are making the smooth ride possible.
Automotive components continue to advance and make our cars safer, smarter and more efficient. For manufacturers, it also leaves room for growth and innovation.
New research from ReportsnReports shows that level sensors, which are used to detect fluid levels and signal changes, continue to play an important role in automobile mechanics. In fact, a look at the level sensor market for 2022 shows growth at 4.13 percent.
SMD Fluid Controls offers level sensors and float switches to meet any of your upcoming project or product line needs.
From measuring the fluid in your braking system as well as important water cooling to stop potential dangers, to keeping your washer fluid reservoir full – there are so many ways level sensors and float switches can be used in automobile applications.
An ultrasonic liquid level sensor is one option that can be used to measure diesel exhaust fluids and help reduce emissions. In other practical uses, a level sensor can eliminate the need to constantly check that fluid levels are filled. Instead with onboard electronics and attached to reservoirs filled with important liquids such as coolants and breaking fluids, lights on the driver dashboard can confirm proper operation or prevent unnecessary breakdown with an early warning.
The research report also attributed the rise in the market to the fact that consumers are interested in these advanced displays on their instrument panels which provide more information about what’s happening under the hood of their car.
