Reliable object detection
November 2018, Sensors & Transducers


Leuze has expanded its portfolio of optoelectronic and inductive switches with the introduction of a range of capacitive proximity switches, which make it possible for users to procure complete solutions for their detection requirements from a single source.

The introduction of contactless, wear-free switches, which are resistant to electromagnetic influences, interference and contaminants in the air, such as dust, will have major advantages for end users. The capacitive switches are available in a cylindrical or cubic design, as well as embedded or non-embedded versions for a wide range of mounting options. Due to their semiconductor technology, the Leuze sensors have a long life expectancy, regardless of the detection and switching frequency.

The new variants facilitate contactless detection of numerous different objects and media, regardless of the shape. These sensors are particularly suitable for detecting objects in harsh and dirty environments due to the IP67 rated housing.

These Leuze sensors can ‘see through’ certain materials to provide optimum accuracy in difficult sensing applications such as those found in food and beverage and printing and packaging operations. The devices can detect products in outer packaging and behind container walls, as well as check fill levels and monitor these for completeness.
