Classically used to tune musical instruments and to assess hearing loss, tuning forks have found widespread use in a variety of surprising applications. A tuning fork’s ability to reliably and accurately output a specific frequency has made it a component of choice in devices ranging from watches to radar guns to gyroscopes.
Tuning Forks have also found use in level-sensing switches for tanks and industrial containers. Conventionally, a level-sensing switch uses a float or pressure sensor to detect the level of the fluid that’s being contained. While these are time-tested designs, they do have some flaws: they cannot work with all types of fluids; they are not solid-state; and they usually require downtime for maintenance. A tuning fork level switch, which is entirely solid-state, overcomes those problems and more by using vibration to detect material level....Read More
