The DX-ECAS exproof capacitive level switch offers high precision limit control for the level management of solid and liquid materials, despite dust, foam, dirt or similar particles in exploosive areas.
The capacitive measuring principle is based on detecting the changing capacity value depending on the mass between the electrode and the tank surface. The sensor electrode is immersed in the material up to the desired point after the installation and the value read by the sensor is recorded as the limit level. Thus, the sensor, which detects only the unique capacity created by the material, is not affected from other materials in the fluid and offers a high sensitivity.
The DX-ECAS exproof capacitive switch is designed for the most difficult conditions. It offers a long lifetime even in high temperature and pressure environments.
Scope of application:
The DX-ECAS exproof capacitive sensors do not have an area limit for industrial level measurement. It can be used in pump or valve control of water and fuel tanks, alarm output of aggressive chemicals, filling-discharge systems of dry solids such as dust or cereals, and even level detection of very hot and sticky materials such as bitumen.
