Capacitive Proximity Sensors are used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. Capacitive Proximity Sensors are one of the most common types of Proximity Sensors used in industry today. They are a popular choice as they last longer, function better, and detect objects incredibly well.
RS offer an extensive selection of high-quality Capacitive Proximity Sensors from industry-leading brands including, BALLUF, Baumer, Carlo Gavazzi, Omron, Pepperl & Fuchs, SICK, Telemecanique, and of course RS PRO.
Capacitive Proximity Sensors use an electrical field to detect metallic and non-metallic materials. Any changes in capacitance in the sensing area are detected by the sensor, which then changes state. They can detect and measure materials that are conductive or have a greater dielectric constant than air and can detect materials in solid form, powder form or in granulate form.
Capacitive Proximity Sensors are commonly used for the following magnetic output applications:
