Stork Digital Submersible Liquid Level Sensor
The SLS range of submersible liquid level transmitters has been developed with a durable stainless steel housing, enclosing an isolated diaphragm silicon piezo-resistive sensing element. It features an integrated cable assembly for permanent submersion in liquids up to 100m deep, ensuring continuous operation.
The internal electronics convert the analogue output from the silicon sensor into SDI-12 digital communications. This protocol, version 1.4, provides serial output for level and temperature readings. Our SDI-12 communications software allows sensor calibration, and built-in density correction using the integrated temperature sensor, and supports up to 9 sensors for data logging and diagnostics.
With an onboard 16-bit microprocessor, the submersible transmitter achieves high accuracy, stability, and repeatability. It performs advanced functions like linearisation, temperature compensation, and calibration. These features make it ideal for demanding applications such as environmental monitoring and flood defence systems.

What is a Level Sensor?
A level sensor is an instrument that gauges and reports the quantity of substance, like liquid or granular materials, within a container. It’s employed in industries for monitoring, automation, and control purposes.
What are Submersible Level Transmitters?
Submersible level transmitters are devices used to measure liquid levels from within a container. These sensors are designed to be submerged in the liquid, providing accurate measurements for applications like tanks, wells, and reservoirs.
What is a Liquid Level Sensor?
A liquid level sensor is a device that measures the depth or height of a liquid in a container, providing information about its level or volume.
What Does a Fluid Level Sensor Do?
A fluid level sensor gauges the amount of liquid in a container. It detects changes in liquid level and sends signals, aiding in monitoring, control, and automation processes.
