Capacitive Poisition Sensors

Featured Product from ifm electronic gmbh


Capacitive sensors are used for the non-contact detection of any objects. In contrast to inductive sensors, which only detect metallic objects, capacitive sensors can also detect non-metallic materials. Typical applications are in the wood, paper, glass, plastic, food, chemical and semiconductor industries.

  • High noise immunity
  • Sensing range adjustable by means of potentiometer or teach button
  • Plastic or metal housings for different applications
  • Accessories for mounting on tanks or sight glasses
