Advanced sensors

Capacitive sensors offer contactless, shape-independent and wear-free operation. Detection is reactionless and, thus, has no effect on the product. They are also resistant to interference and contamination, e.g., dust in the air. As a result, they have high interference rejection, making them ideal for use in harsh industrial environments. The LCS-1 capacitive sensors in the Advanced category are optionally available as IO-Link models with teach button for flexible configuration of the switching distance and for permanent process optimization. Moreover, versions with Teflon housing (PTFE) can also be used in situations with high chemical stress, such as in the semiconductor industry.
