Hycontrol Capacitance Switch ME30 Corrosion Proof

Capacitance Switch ME30 Corrosion Proof


Manufacturer: Hycontrol

The ME30 capacitance probe offers reliable point level switching in corrosive media and atmospheres. 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.

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!
