9830 Industrial Series

Industrial Reed Switch Fuel Level Sender with Pickup and Return


The Reed Switch Probe with pickup and return fits in tanks from 10” [254 mm] to 30” [762 mm] in depth. They are designed for top mounting in aluminum, plastic, steel or stainless steel fuel tanks in all types of industrial equipment. These senders are recommended for both on-road and off-road applications. They include special features and protection from corrosion (internal and external to the fuel tank) which makes them the quality standard for all industries.

General Information & Features

Standard mounting configuration is the SAE 5 hole bolt pattern. The head and support are made of aluminum, which makes it suitable for harsh off-road conditions. The sender is suitable for gasoline, ethanol, diesel and bio-diesel.

Industry standard output is 240-30 ohms with custom ohm ranges available. The close tolerances held on this series of reed switch fuel level sender will provide the proper signal for various 2” [50.8 mm] panel mounted receivers or ECM’s.

Our modular head and fitting design allows our pickup and return fittings to be oriented in various configurations without tooling costs.

Two year limited warranty
