IDEC introduces the fastest, most reliable liquid detection sensor on the market. Using a laser beam tuned to the resonant frequency of an H2O molecule, the SA1W is able to detect any liquid containing water molecules-without contact! Water-containing fluids look like a black wall to the SA1W. With a lens attachment, SA1W can even detect liquid level contained inside an sealed almunum can.
