The Reed Switch line of fuel senders fit tanks 4" to 60". 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.

Standard mounting configuration, SAE 5 hole bolt pattern. The head and support are made of stainless steel and is suitable for harsh off-road conditions. The sender is suitable for gasoline, ethanol, diesel, bio-diesel, urea and water.

Industry standard output: 240-30 ohms. The close tolerances held on this series of Reed Switch fuel level sender will provide the proper signal for any of the popular 2" panel mounted quality receivers or ECM's.
