RS PRO Flush Mount Capacitive Proximity Sensor

Introducing the range of RS PRO Capacitive Proximity Sensors. These versatile and high-quality sensors are an essential addition to any environment where measurement of attributes like pressure, thickness, etc. are integral to business operations, like manufacturing plants and industrial environments. With the RS PRO seal of approval, you are guaranteed a premium performance product, without the premium product price tag.

Features and Benefits:

  • This capacitive sensor can detect both metal and non-metal objects

  • It also has the ability to detect various media via non-metallic containers

  • They provide reliable and accurate liquid level detection

  • Provides a lower-cost solution for proximity sensor needs whilst featuring good resolution, stability, high speed and low power usage

  • Each sensor has a simple in construction and is adjustable

  • They can be used for the measurement of force, pressure and humidity, etc. and they have a higher sensitivity and can be operational with small magnitude of force

  • Capacitive proximity sensing offers increased usability, improved industrial design, and increased functionality with many different consumer applications


A capacitive proximity sensor is a non-contact device that is able to detect the presence or absence of virtually any object regardless of material. The sensors do this by using the electrical property of capacitance and the change of capacitance based on a change in the electrical field around the active face of the sensor.
These sensors are especially useful for level sensing in production or laboratory environments where certain attributes need to be monitored for effective working and for the guarantee of quality, like measuring pressure, flow, thickness, liquid level and so much more.

What type of connectors do the sensors use?

This RS PRO sensor uses an M12 connector
