Capacitive Fluid-Level Sensors
Customized capacitive fluid-level sensors are designed for measuring fluid or granular material in non-metallic containers. Featuring multiple output interface options, including SB, I2C and discrete signals, the capacitive sensors provide a customized interface for virtually any application requirement. The sensors deliver 95 percent accuracy in auto mode and 98 percent accurate when manually calibrated. The embedded software can be configured for maintenance-free auto-calibration or manual calibration to maximize sensor accuracy. Equipped with flexible circuitry which conforms to the container shape via pressure-sensitive adhesive, capacitive sensors are easily mounted to the outside of a container allowing measurement of caustic fluids, in addition to granular and pulverized materials. The sensors can measure through almost any non-metallic material. Featuring solid-state capacitive technology with no moving parts, capacitive sensors eliminate problems with mechanical wear over time. Providing design flexibility, sensor circuitry substrate options include PCB, polyester flexible circuit and polyimide flexible circuit.
