Compact Capacitance Probe

Model: Compact Pro

The Compact Pro is a compact capacitance probe designed for tight spaces. It is used for high or low level measurement and plugged chute detection for liquids, powders, granules, and pelleted materials. It is appropriate for use in tanks, bins, silos, chutes, conveyors, pipes, or load out hoppers. Its small size makes it easy to install and a simple "one-time" calibration procedure with sensitivity up to less than one picofarad ensures fast set up. A visual LED on the housing indicates sensor status at-a-glance, showing the presence or absence of material.

  • Point level detection and process control in liquid, powder, granular, and pelleted materials
  • Used in smaller bins, vessels, tanks, and chutes
  • Plastics, chemicals, concrete, food ingredients, pharmaceuticals, feed, grain, wood or paper processing, many other materials
  • Works where proximity switches don’t
  • PRO-Shield feature ignores material buildup
  • LED on housing indicates sensor status: covered or uncovered
  • Easy “one-time” calibration
  • Compact design; simple to install
  • For metal, plastic or other non-metallic vessels
