We propose a low cost electronic circuit based on a microcontroller unit (MCU), suitable for electrochemical control in several systems requiring fluid detection and discrimination. We describe the hardware and software design of the smart fluid sensor implementing the necessary programmed logic, signal generation and processing. Testing application to devices and systems over different dimensional scales as in microfluidic devices and in power plants are discussed.
