Hi everyone, I am with a project that needs a liquid level sensor, I have seen the XKC Y25 V and XKCY5 NPN, has anyone used this sensor? Any advice?.
In this link they comment something about its use (https://alexkychen.wordpress.com/2017/12/03/non-contact-liquid-sensor-xkc-y25-v-with-arduino/)
Hello Sergio! To be honest I’ve never used that module before, but I’m curious about it. I’ll order one module and try it myself in a couple of weeks.
I don’t know how accurate/reliable it is. For what I can tell it’s very easy to use and it should work as expected. Which surface do you plan to use it with? Is it metal surface or non metal surface?
Hello Rui, it’s about reading the level in an opaque PVC deposit. From what I have read, this sensor detects liquid level by variation of capacity at the point where it is located. It seems interesting, another thing is that it is effective. You will already say something when you prove it.
Thanks! Keep me posted, because I’m curious about the sensor. I was just asking, because if it’s a metal surface, you’ll need to make something like this: https://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/Non-contact_Liquid_Level_Sensor_XKC-Y25-T12V_SKU:_SEN0204
Thanks Rui, your link has clarified some doubts about this sensor. In the specifications the range of the material’s fat is important for me. (Range for thickness of induction (sensitivity): 0 ~ 13 mm).
