Amphenol Advanced Sensors Turbidity Sensors measure the amount of
suspended particles, or turbidity, in the wash water of washing machines
and dishwashers. By detecting the amount of soil in the water, appliances can
conserve energy by only washing as long as necessary. TST/TSD are additions to Amphenol's offering of turbidity sensors. TST-10 offers a higher voltage rating of 2.7V than GE's similar product the
TSW-10 (1.3V) and is physically different to match the specific drain assemblies
on white goods. TST-10 and TSD-10 offer a wider NTU range (Nephelometric Turbidity Unit) to
meet white goods manufacturers accuracy requirements. This allows these sensors
to be used in a broader range of applications.
