BinMaster Offers Capacitance Probes

A capacitance probe is a point level indicator, commonly used for high or low level detection in a bin, tank or silo. BinMaster capacitance probes offer fail-safe operation, “quick-set” calibration, plus interference-free operation–working far below the RF level of 9 KHz at just 6 KHz–so they will not interfere with two-way radios or other equipment operating in the radio spectrum.

BinMasterBinMaster’s capacitance probes are an affordable, flexible soluton for level detection in bins, tanks and silos. Capacitance probes detect the presence or absence of material in contact with the probe by sensing minute changes (as low as 0.5 pF) in capacitance caused by the difference in the dielectric constant of the material versus the air.

BinMaster probes feature interference-free operation, simple calibration, and fail-safe functionality and perform accurately even in dusty, sticky, or clinging materials. Class II hazardous location ratings and a wide assortment of extensions can be custom built to user specifiications making these point-level sensors appropriate for a variety of solid, liquid, and slurry materials.
