High Pressure Sensor
(Dishwasher)
The water turbine used on some of the dishwashers is designed to eliminate the dependency on the pressure switch for filling. The unit is fitted in the fill line of the machine and works by the rotation of the turbine as water flows over it. A fixed reed switch registers the number rotations the turbine makes by counting the passing of a magnet fitted to the impeller. It can also act as an over flow preventative because it counts and regulates the amount of water entering the machine. The pressure switch will still be used if there is a fault registered with the turbine and a turbine fault will display at the end of the cycle.
