Built to last. What's your application?

Capacitive sensors are used for the non-contact position detection and level monitoring of solids, liquids, or bulk materials.

No physical actuating force is required for operation. So there's no contact bounce, no sensor wear, no maintenance.

You can utilise capacitive sensors as limit switches, as contactless switches for monitoring and positioning, as pulse generators for counting tasks, or for distance and speed measurements.

IECEx capacitive sensors are our specialty.

And they're Rechner's, too. Through Pacific Automation, you can access a massive range of IECEx-certified capacitive sensors, suitable for use across Australia.

Working within Hazardous Zones 1 & 2 (gas) or 21 & 22 (dust)? We can supply you with switches specifically designed for these environments.

Need to brush up on the differences between IECEx and ATEX? This quick article has you covered.

What can you measure with capacitive sensors?

Dry, free-flowing materials

Rechner's i-Level Series of capacitive sensors with metal cable are designed for continuous level measurement of dry, free-flowing bulk materials.

i-Level sensors can accurately measure without dead zones, and are resistant to material build-up, temperature changes, and dust interference.

This makes them ideal for use in grain silos, bins, and hoppers as flow or loss sensors or for general tank measurement.

Food & pharma products

Stringent guidelines for the food and pharmaceutical industries require that all parts in contact with product must be simple and safe to clean.

This has resulted in the extensive use of Tri-Clamp (also known as Tri-Clover) connections.

Rechner Tri-Clamp adapters simplify the conversion of threaded sensors. Alternatively, reduce the number of connection points and select a capacitive sensor with an included Tri-Clamp connection.

We'll help specify your next capacitive sensor.
