Leuze electronic is launching a family of capacitive proximity switches to complement its existing portfolio of optoelectronic and inductive sensors, so the company is saying its customers can now meet all of their sensing requirements from a single source.
With its new range of capacitive products, Leuze electronic is introducing contactless, wear-free switches that are resistant to electromagnetic influences, interference and contaminants in the air - such as dust. The capacitive switches are available in cylindrical or cubic designs with flush and non-flush mounting options to suit a wide range of applications.
Due to their semiconductor technology they have a very long life expectancy, regardless of the detection and switching frequency. Whether solid, liquid or granular, capacitive sensors are capable of detecting various objects independently of their material and shape, without contact and without reaction. They are particularly suitable for detecting objects in harsh and dirty environments due to their IP67 housings. Because of their ability to 'see through' certain materials they are particularly suited for use in the packaging industry, detecting products in outer packaging and behind container walls, checking and monitoring fill levels for completeness.
