Hycontrol’s ME Series capacitance level switches provide simple, accurate and reliable level control for a wide range of applications. They are suitable for use on liquids, solids, slurries, pastes, granules, powders and pellets in high temperature, high pressure and corrosive environments.

Unlike some other capacitive switches, this unit works independently of the tank walls using an integral grounding sleeve without the need for a reference probe, which enables it to be used in concrete, plastic or other non-metallic tanks. This technology also provides an ideal solution for interface detection applications such as oil on water and liquid detection underneath a layer of foam.


Key Benefits

  • Easy installation through a 1” BSP process fitting
  • High corrosion and chemical resistance as standard options
  • Universal design can be used for high or low-level detection
  • Failsafe options high and low selectable
  • Multiple versions with rod and cable to simplify mounting options
  • High-temperature versions up to 800°C
  • Low maintenance technology with no moving parts
  • Adjustable sensitivity for a wide range of products
  • Adjustable time delay to stop spurious signals from surface ripple
  • Interface level detection for difficult applications
