low oil detector for industrial machine?

I've got a machine that runs pretty fast, so we use high speed bearings with an oil mist to keep lubricated. The oil mist is pneumatic, and we've got the typical inline moisture remover and filters in line with the air line, problem is, we've got an inline oil reservoir to supply the oil, but people don't check periodically and when it runs out, there goes the bearings. I need something that will detect when the oil goes low and let the operators know to refill the system. It would be even better if I could wire in a solenoid to shut off the machine until it's filled.

Any ideas? Industrial application.....

Probably some of the big Industrial mfg have more choices--Deere/Caterpillar--

JC Whitney has one for (small) auto use, but I'm sure it's just 12vdc

Not much help--

Think I'll contact AleMite. Someone recommended them over on another site.
