Abstract

The invention discloses an oil level sensing device which comprises a shell, an induction electrode, a capacitance converting circuit and an oil capacity display. The induction electrode and the capacitance converting circuit are disposed in the shell. The capacitance converting circuit is connected with the induction electrode and the shell respectively. The oil capacity display is connected with the capacitance converting circuit. The shell and the induction electrode form a coaxial container. When oil starts to contact with the container, capacitance variation between the shell and the induction electrode is caused, variation quantity is converted through the capacitance converting circuit into standard signals of 4-20mA to be sent to the oil capacity display. When complex and rugged landforms are encountered during driving of a vehicle, oil level in an oil tank shakes fiercely, and impact force generated by shaking causes certain damages to the sensing device; due to a simple structure, none of movable or elastic element components are provided, so that reliability is high and maintaining workload is few.
