CAPACITIVE LEVEL LIMIT SWITCH February 05, 2015

CAPACITIVE LEVEL LIMIT SWITCH

Principles of Function

The capacitive level limit switch is automatically calibrated to a reference capacitance of an empty container.  If the probe is covered by the product, the measured capacitance changes on the sensor through the dielectric and a switching signal is activated.  The integrated 'Active Shield' technology ensures high reliability even for products that cause caking.

Solutions for:

  • Dusty environments.
  • Abrasive media
  • Extreme process temperatures
  • Positive and negative pressure
  • Hazardous areas
  • Heavy materials
  • Caking bulk solids

UWT - Simply Reliable

  • Bulk materials with very low Dk value of 1.5
  • Applications with process pressure up to 25 bar
  • Vibration in the container
  • High safety standard
  • High hygiene requirements
  • Simple to install and set up
  • PFA coating
  • Temperature range from -40C up to +500C
  • High quality process materials (VA 1.4571/1.4404, ermaics, PPS
