GT Class Race Car Level Sensor

Gill has designed a custom engine oil level sender for a sports car application. Designed to meet the installation requirements of a globally recognised road and race car manufacturer, the sender is intended for use on race-prepared cars competing in GT class motorsport events.

The sender, which features a mounting flange with an M20 x 1.5 thread, is installed into the existing OEM oil tank. An O-ring seal on the underside of the mounting flange ensures that an oil-tight seal is maintained at all times.

Monitoring a total depth of 169.5mm, the oil level sender provides an analogue 0-5V output (calibrated 0.25V empty, 4.75V full). This custom oil level sender utilises our proven capacitive measurement technology to detect oil level to 0.5% accuracy.

As with all engine oil applications, the sender was designed for high temperature operation up to 125ºC and environmentally protected to IP68.
