Our capacitance level sensors are  2-wire level transmitters are highly reliable microprocessor based sensors designed to measure tank levels of liquids and certain dry bulk media in metal tanks as well as non metal tanks.

Capacitance level sensors measure the change in capacitance that occurs as the tank level changes and outputs a standard loop-powered 4-20mA signal. After calibration any change in level is recognized and converted to an analog 4-20mA signal. LTX01 sensors use very high frequency and very low amplitude sensing circuitry to greatly minimize the effects of coating on the sensing probe.
