The Deeter Capacitive Sensor (DCS) is a reliable alternative to our range of float switches, specifically designed for use in cryogenic applications and other non-conductive liquids. With no moving parts, accurate level measurement takes place within the custom length hollow probe. The open ended probe allows liquid to flow in and out from the bottom of the sensor where turbulence is at a minimum, making it ideal for use in fast flowing or turbulent applications.
– Microprocessor Based Pulse – Counting Technology
– Probe Lengths can be made to measure to suit specific applications – maximum 6m
– Suitable for non-conductive liquids only.
– Easy Push Button Set-up of Span and Zero Points.
– Zero-low maintenance required.
– Soon to be available with ATEX/ IECEx Ia certification. Please contact the sales office for more information.Features Include:
