Capacitive sensor

Capanivo® - CN 4050

Application area

The capacitive point level sensor Capanivo® CN 4050 is used in storage and process vessels as a full detector in all bulk solids from a DK value of 1.6. The measuring probe can be flexibly adjusted up to a length of 6000 mm and puts the switching point where the application needs it. In addition, this probe extension with expanded cable is the basis for beneficial effects, if lateral forces act on the extension.
