Title
(EN) SOAP DISPENSER HAVING FLUID LEVEL SENSOR
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR DE SAVON COMPORTANT UN CAPTEUR DE NIVEAU DE FLUIDE
Abstract
(EN)
A fill level sensor assembly (72) for a liquid soap container or vessel (26) has a float-bearing arm (71) and an accelerometer (88) that is attached to a surface of the arm (71) to detect changes in the volume of liquid soap in the container (26). A feedback system (93) then conveys fill status information based on the output of the accelerometer (88), such as to service personnel who may be responsible for replenishing the supply of liquid soap in the container (26).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble capteur de niveau de remplissage (72) pour un récipient de savon liquide (26) comprenant un bras de support de flotteur (71) et un accéléromètre (88) qui est attaché à une surface du bras (71) afin de détecter les variations du volume de savon liquide dans le récipient (26). Un système de rétroaction (93) transmet ensuite les informations d'état de remplissage en fonction du signal de l'accéléromètre (88), par exemple, au personnel d'entretien qui peut être responsable du remplissage du savon liquide dans le récipient (26).
