S286 Capacitance Type Oil Level Switch

The S286 is an active device designed to give an alarm signal if oil falls below, or rises above, a preset level. It can be specified with a delay to eliminate false alarms due to turbulence.
Containing a factory programmable microprocessor, the switch offers sink to ground or source voltage outputs, or even both outputs on separate pins.
Its small footprint with limited intrusion into the tank means a reduced risk of damage and a wide range of customer specifiable options make it suitable for many applications.


The S286 is a horizontally mounted switch for sensing diesel/oil levels. Fitted with a Packard connector all models have an inbuilt time delay to reduce the risk of intermittent switching through liquid turbulence and is available with a wide selection of switching output options.
