Sensor compatibility high ouput

Question

Dear forum members,

I'm looking for a non-contact waterlevel sensor reading solution to connect to the smart implant.
According to the manual of the smart implant, you can connect 2 x 0-10V sensor.
I can find some of those sensors but they all have below specification.
 

  • Output voltage (high level) : InVCC
  • Output voltage (low level) : 0V
  • Output current: 1 ~ 50 mA

 

Such as this one :

I don't know what the high level ouput voltage means and how I'm able to connect these types of sensors to the 24V powered smart implant.
Is there anyone than can help me with this?

Yes, the same sensor working in my house and controlled my reservation water tank.

it close valve automatically when water under up level.

this device connected to Zuno zwave device 

if you do not have zuno or decide what zuno is too expensive you may connect this device to esp8266 that also works 

this device can also integrated  with HC3 without any issues

  • @10der, That's no really an answer on my question. Unless you mean that there is no way to connect that sensor to a Fibaro module (preferable smart implant in addition to the current one with temperature probe).
    I already have several other components running (Raspberry, Siemens Logo). I don't want to learn any other one.
    I also have 24V power device. Preferable, I don't want to have any other power supply.
    The space to install is very limited (it's located in a IP67 box outside near my plunge pool) and I barely have other power options.
    I also still don't know what the high level output voltage means.
    Other idea's?

  • @10der, Thanks for thinking. But still, I don't understand what the difference is between this component and a Fibaro Smart implant?

    According to specs shelly:

    • 2 digital inputs
    • 2 potential-free outputs
    • ADC range can measure any voltage from 0 to 30 VDC
    • Supports up to 3xDS18B20 temperature sensors or 1Х humidity sensors

    Looks like the same as the smart implant to me with my limited knowledge. So, what's the difference (sorry, I want to learn)?

    And how do you see this shelly component working? Connect the sensor to the Shelly component and connect output of Shelly to Fibaro Smart Implant?
    Or, read out the Shelly component directly via rest (or MQTT)?
