    Hi Dainesh,

    This looks a good solution that confirms to the 2018 change in regulations.

    Please do you happen to have a parts list (or kit) as I wish to build this circuit

    Many thanks Tall Paul.

    Hi,

    I just had a bit of update on the Simple Water Level Sensor.

    Now you can connect it to a receiver, so it become a plug and play tool. Put the sensor on the sight glass than connect the servo connector to any unused slot on the receiver, plus don't forget to connect a power supply to the receiver like battery 4.8V or 6V and it is ready to run.
    It is good to identify that the water level is below the sensor level in the boiler.
    In this case the red led switches ON and you have two options:
    1. take the boat out of the water and refill the boiler
    2. have an electronic pump in your boat and switch it on by an RC switch with a relay (use any switching arm on your transmitter) when the red LED switches OFF count till ten and you can switch OFF the pump.

    Here is the video:

    I have one of Dainesh's engine management units, initial experiments are encouraging, I will post details once it is up and running in my Clyde Puffer. But first I must finish the minesweeper...
    If it don't fit, use a hammer to make it fit....

    Dear Gents,

    This is a simple solution for steam boat or steam engine modellers.
    You can set the sensor to the minimum level of water on your boiler, play with the boat on the water, and when the LED switches ON you still have enough time to remove the boat from the water to refill it.
    Or you can switch the electric pump or the pump control servo by from your radio transmitter, if the LED is OFF you wait a couple of seconds and you can switch the pump/pump control servo OFF.
    It has a water bouncing system, so the LED won't blinking when the water goes up and down in the sight glass, or if there is a moving water bubble.
