Turbidity Sensor
(Dishwasher)
Turbidity sensors measure the turbidity (how dirty the water is) in dishwashers, and can help save energy and water by reducing the length of time a wash cycle need be on to get the dishes to a set level of cleanliness. i.e. (Lightly soiled dishes need less wash time than heavily soiled dishes). It works by light being transmitted through the water between two points, and the strength of that light beam is measured, (the cleaner the water the stronger the beam.) this information is fed back to the module which takes the appropriate action. These sensors are usually sited in the or close to the heater box, and in the water flow.
Associated Faults
  • Longer wash time
  • Incorrect Turbidity readings
