Introduction: Water Level Sensor Module for Arduino AVR ARM STM32 STM8
Congratulations to the ICStation team! They have developed this wonderful water level sensor module by great efforts.This module with small size and high cost-effective is easy to use.In this article, we will use the digital storage oscilloscope to show you how the output voltage change with the immersion depth.What’s more,we will show you an interesting actual application case.You will have a clear idea of how this module to realize the function of water level alarm.
This module is designed mainly for the DIY hobbyist and provide them a low-cost and easy-to-use water level detection scheme.The stability and durability of this module can not reach the industrial standard.But we use the high-quality PCB board to improve its stability and durability.If you just want to DIY for fun, this module will be a good choice.

Step 1: Diagram
Step 2: Function Introduction
Step 3: Functional Test
Testing environment:barreled pure water
1.Connect the module to 5V power supply
2.Put the module to into the pure water
3.Observe the relation between the immersion depth and the output voltage of AO end.
Step 4: Actual Testing Results:①Totally Out
Output Voltage: 0V
Step 5: ②Immerse Part of the Module
Output Voltage: 3.22V
Output Current: 28mA
Step 6: ③Immerse Full Part of the Module
Output Voltage: 3.42V
Output Current: 32mA
According to the three groups of data, we can make a conclusion that the actual testing results meet the requirement of application.
