Solid state bin level sensor

52 A 400The SCL series capacitance point level sensor eliminates the problems associated with rotary paddle style bin level indicators, the company contends, by using solid state capacitance sensing technology to detect the presence or absence of a wide range of materials, including dry and freely flowing powders and granular materials. Capacitance sensing techniques suit most applications without calibration adjustments. The SCL model features a local LED indication; 20-250VAC/VDC universal power supply; fail-safe selection for high and low level applications; and, can work with target materials exhibiting a dielectric constant as low as 1.5. — Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc., 815/632-3132; www.aplusfine.com
