Operating principle of capacitive sensors

Capacitive sensors are often also referred to as capacitive proximity switches. They are position sensors. These sensors operate by a change in the electrical field that is in the active zone and thus in the environment of the so-called sensor electrode. Capacitive sensors can detect different media through non-metallic vessel walls or on bypass pipes and are therefore often used for level measurement. The medium to be detected increases the capacitance which leads to a change in the output status of the sensor.

Consequently there are numerous applications for capacitive sensors such as:

  • Detection of metals and almost all plastics
  • Detection of glass, ceramics, wood and paper
  • Detection of conductive media or bulk materials

 

Order capacitive sensors online from Automation24

Automation24 offers you many capacitive sensors at low prices. One of the leading manufacturers in this field is ifm electronic. Therefore we have focussed on respective standard capacitive sensors from this manufacturer. We offer you branded quality - Made in Germany.

The offered portfolio of capacitive sensors includes rectangular and cylindrical designs. The latter are available in M12, M18 and M30. The sensing ranges of the various cable and connector units as well as articles with terminal chamber are between 4mm and 20 mm. Setting is made via potentiometer or pushbuttons and partly an electronic lock can be activated to safeguard settings. Depending on the unit, the function normally closed or normally open can be freely selected. In addition, all capacitive sensors of this portfolio feature increased noise immunity for more reliability and the switching status is indicated via LEDs. Since the capacitive sensor KI505A has a 3D ATEX approval, it is the optimum sensor for use in in potentially explosive atmospheres.

At Automation24 you find a comprehensive selection of capacitive sensors at very favourable prices. Select the sensor suitable for you application now!
