Hycontrol Capacitance Switch ME40 Remote

Capacitance Switch ME40 Remote


Manufacturer: Hycontrol

The ME40 remote electronics capacitance switch is a practical solution to more difficult applications, for example, those with high levels of vibration that may otherwise upset or damage the sensitive components in the probe head. These issues may be overcome by remote-mounting the sensitive parts.

Traditional capacitance switches have a critical technology limitation that requires a specific transmitter and/or sensor to be used dependent upon the dielectric constant and conductance of the material monitored.

As the result of a major technological breakthrough, the ME Series uses the same transmitter and sensor for all applications.

This advancement in capacitance level switch technology simplifies product selection, ordering, installation, maintenance, and spare parts stocking. While the ME Series may be adjusted to suit specific process requirements, the factory settings are ideal for most applications. A simple sensitivity adjustment (dip switch and/or potentiometer) may be required when sticky conductive materials are to be detected.

Usually, you can just mount it, wire it, and forget it!
