Capanivo® CN 8000

Capacitive Sensor for point level measurement in liquids


The Capanivo® level limit switch can be used in many solids and liquids as a full, demand or empty detector. The robust, glass reinforced PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide) sensor is even suitable for food applications whilst also resistant to many forms of aggressive material. The Capanivo® can be used in storage and process vessels, or in pipes, as a limit switch and spillage detector. The electrodes in the sensor make up a condensator. As the level of the material changes, the capacitance changes as well. The integrated electronics evaluate the change in capacity and convert it to a switching signal. The Capanivo® has approvals for hazardous Locations (Dust Ex) and is therefore suitable for use in most industries as a limit switch. • Level limit detection in liquids, slurries, foam, interfaces and solids • Vertical, horizontal, oblique installation. • Variable extended rod- and cable version. • Available as a remote version. • Profibus PA, relay and solid state switch.
