New Capacitive Level Sensor for Non-Contact Detection of Challenging Fluids

April 23, 2013 - "Press Releases"

Plainville CT – Gems Sensors & Controls releases the new CAP-100 series capacitive liquid level sensors that offer accurate level sensing through the walls of a wide variety of bottle types including fiberglass, glass, and plastic. These sensors are compact and ideally suited for medical applications including waste, reagent, buffer or diluent as well as dark, sticky or viscous fluids. The level monitoring is conducted from outside the sealed container which is especially useful for vessels containing biohazardous liquids. They are easy to calibrate, available in both aqueous and non-aqueous versions and can be delivered with factory-present sensitivity for quick installation for OEM orders, as well as be used as a proximity sensor to detect the presence of solids.

The CAP-100 Series is a non-contact/ non-intrusive sensor that senses from outside non-metallic reservoirs or bottles with wall thicknesses to 0.39” (10mm) thick without attaching the bottle. The sensor supports aqueous or non-aqueous liquid detection, with a choice of Wet- or Dry-Sink switch actuation.

CAP-100 sensors, featuring IP67 protection, measure just 2/25” x 1/18” (57mm x 30mm). They incorporate LED signal and power indicators with an integrated potentiometer allows sensitivity field adjustments. Gems CAP-100 sensors are CE-approved.
