Hycontrol Capacitance Switch ME10 Standard

Capacitance Switch ME10 Standard


Manufacturer: Hycontrol

The ME10 Standard makes use of versatile capacitance technology to provide precise and reliable level switching for a wide variety of industrial applications.

pdf datasheet

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 advance 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.

The ME10 is a workhorse level switch for a range of applications. Mount it, wire it, and forget it!
