Capacitive Level Limit Switch

The Capanivo® level limit switch can be used in many solids and liquids as a full, demand or empty detector.

The robust, glass reinforced PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide) sensor  is even suitable for food applications whilst also resistant to many forms of aggressive material. The Capanivo® can be used in storage and process vessels, or in pipes, as a limit switch and spillage detector.

The electrodes in the sensor make up a condensator. As the level of the material changes, the capacitance changes as well. The integrated electronics evaluate the change in capacity and convert it to a switching signal.

The Capanivo® has approvals for hazardous Locations (Dest Ex) and is therefore suitable for use in most industries as a limit switch.
