Capacitive sensor

Capanivo® - CN 4030

Application area

The capacitive point level sensor Capanivo® CN 4030 is used in storage and process vessels as a full and demand detector in all bulk solids from a DK value of 1.6. The measuring probe can be flexibly adjusted up to a length of 3000 mm and puts the switching point where the application needs it. Due to its “Active Shield” function any buildup does not in any way affect the accuracy of the measurement results of the sensor.
