A level sensor with IO Link technology

| By Gerald Ondrey

This company’s KA1590 capacitive sensor (from the 26 Series) now has IO Link Technology. This IO Link sensor (photo) can detect products with a low 1.1 dielectric. The sensor comes with normally open contact and normally closed contact. ON and OFF delay timing functions are programmable for the application requirements. The sensor operates on 10–35 V d.c., the housing is IP67 sealed for cleaning in place (CIP) and installation is quick with tri-clamp mounting. The sensor’s PTFE housing is FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 compliant for use in food and pharmaceutical applications. The sensor has a temperature rating up to 100°C. — Rechner Electronics Ind.
