Capacitive sensors


Made object detection easily

Capacitive proximity switches are the all-rounder when it comes to the detection of non-metallic materials. An electric field generated by the sensor is altered by the proximity of conductive materials, thus causing a detection of objects in the detection area of ​​the sensor. Thus, a variety of materials such as wood, flour, plastic pellets, coffee, sand or liquids such as oil, water and milk can be reliably detected. The more the material is able to conduct electric current, the better the detection capability is through the capacitive sensor.

A particular advantage of the capacitive sensors is to detect through the ability of these substances by non-metallic materials. This allows, for example, the level monitoring of liquids or granules in plastic or glass containers without the sensor having to delektierenden the material must come into contact. Proxitron offers a wide range of capacitive sensors for different applications in industry and research. This includes versions with high switching distances or for increased ambient temperatures. We also offer special designs for the analog level monitoring with teach-in technology that provides a fast adaptation to different operating conditions.

Various housing materials, connections or operating voltage variants round off the program.
