Balluff’s Advanced Smartlevel capacitive sensors are designed to sense solids and highly conductive acids and bases. The Smartlevel is designed for level detection applications involving liquids, powders, granulates, paste such as medias, such as grease, cleaning fluids, and acids and bases. The Smartlevel is housed in 316 stainless steel, which allows it to be used for aggressive and harsh environments. The Peek sensing nose will provide protection against sticky and adhesive materials. This combination of housing materials gives the sensor an IP69 rating and is suitable for use in autoclaves for one hour. It can also be integrated into control systems with either discrete outputs or with IO-Link communication.
