A smart capacitance sensor for level control

By Chemical Engineering |

The Advanced SmartLevel capacitive sensor (photo) combines standard capacitive sensing technology and the patented SmartLevel technology, enabling the ability to sense solids and highly conductive acids and bases with the utmost reliability. The Advanced SmartLevel is housed in 316 stainless steel, and the PEEK sensing nose provides protection against sticky and adhesive materials. This combination of housing materials gives the sensor an IP69 rating, and is suitable for use in autoclaves for one hour. When used with the proper mounting accessories, the sensor can be used in hygienic applications. Integration into control systems is fast and flexible with either discrete outputs or with IO-Link communication. — Balluff, Inc., Florence, Ky.
