Reliable detection of objects and fill levels
September 2017, Sensors & Transducers


Leuze’s range of optoelectronic and inductive sensors, along with capacitive proximity switches, make it possible to engineer a solution for all detection requirements from a single source. These contactless, wear-free switches are resistant to electromagnetic influences, interference and contaminants in the air, such as dust, and using innovative technology, are able to monitor fill levels and detect objects through packaging materials.

For optimum application flexibility, the sensors are available in a cylindrical or cubic design, and in embedded or non-embedded versions, which allows for a wide range of mounting options.

Designed using semiconductor technology, these Leuze devices offer a long life expectancy, regardless of the detection and switching frequency, making contactless detection of many different objects and media possible, regardless of the shape. The switches are particularly suitable for detecting objects in harsh and dirty environments due to their IP67 housing. Further, the ability to ‘see through’ certain materials allows them to be used in the food, beverage and packaging industries, where it is possible to detect products in outer packaging and behind container walls. These sensors are also ideal for accurately checking fill levels and monitoring for completeness.
