NivoCapa® - NC 8100 Capacitive Sensor

Brand: UWT GmbH
Application Area

The capacitance level sensor NivoCapa® 8100  is a simple and cost-effective solution for level measurement of liquids or oils.

Interface measurement is possible as well. It can be used in large storage tanks, small process vessels, buffer tanks, hoppers, sumps, bypass or downtubes.

The different gadget versions make installations from above and below possible and - due to remote housing - can also be used in vibrating environments or in areas of  limited space.
Features
  • Reliable measurement results even with viscous, adhesive medium due to "Active Shield" technology
  • "Inverse Frequency Shift" technology ensures precise measurement results
  • Maintenance-free sensor
