Sensor Detects Oil Contamination And Temperature

Said to be affordable, the KMS oil contamination and temperature sensor detects the presence of ferrous material in oil systems. The stainless-steel sensor weighs 1.4 oz. and has a diameter of 0.85 in. It can be used to monitor gearbox and transmission oil for signs of gear wear and effectively provide early warning of potential damage or premature failure. Parts such as gears and pump impeller can be prone to extreme wear.


Construction is stainless steel incorporating a powerful magnet that attracts ferrous material to the extended tip of the sensor. The built-in amplifier provides a 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc output proportional to the quantity of material detected and based on a 0 to100% scale. An integrated temperature sensor assists with the oil condition monitoring. The KMS is available for immediate delivery.
