The electrosensitive bloodhounds detect metallic and non-metallic objects of all types.
Typical Capacitive sensors
Capacitive sensors are suitable for the detection of metallic and non-metallic objects of all types. Even highly transparent glasses or liquids are easy to detect with a capacitive sensor. Only the dielectric conductivity of the target material is relevant: the greater the dielectric constant of a material, the higher the possible switching distances or the more reliable the detection.
Switching distances from 0.1 to 30; mm
Robust cylindrical stainless steel housings (6.5 to 30; mm)
Easy mounting thanks to conventional cylinder construction
Simple sensitivity adjustment via potentiometer
Various designs for flush and non-flush mounting
Switching output: PNP or NPN
Output function: N.O. or N.C.
The measurement of filling levels is among the classic applications of capacitive sensors because many liquids have comparatively high dielectric constants. Under certain circumstances it is also possible to measure from outside the container because capacitive sensors can, so to speak, see through walls. They are also used for detecting solids such as wood, paper and plastics.
They are found in the most varied of industrial sectors due to their great immunity to interfering factors of all types. SensoPart offers a wide range of capacitive sensors in cylindrical housings for all areas of use.
