Capacitive sensors - Sensors for industrial automation applications

  • Reliable level detection through non-metal vessel walls
  • Easy adjustment in the application via pushbutton or IO-Link
  • Versions with automatic detection of PNP or NPN output loads
  • Normally closed and normally open outputs available
  • Clearly visible indication of the switching status


Detection through non-metallic tank walls

Capacitive sensors detect bulk materials or liquids through non-metal tank walls or on bypasses. They are used to detect the minimum level, leakage or overflow of tanks. Typical applications are in the wood, paper, glass, plastic, food, chemical and semiconductor industries.

The parameters can either be set via the buttons on the sensor or via IO-Link interface. Variants with automatic load detection simplify configuration and set-up with different evaluation systems.
