What are the advantages of smart level sensors compared to standard capacitive sensors?

Advantages of smart level sensors

Smart Level capacitive sensor can reliably distinguish between true liquid level and
conditions such as foam or material buildup.
Standard capacitive sensors that detect anything with a dielectric strength


Other advantages are:

  • Penetrates glass or plastic wall thickness up to 10 mm
  • Detects aqueous to conductive media
  • Can be equipped with a chemically resistant PTFE housing
  • Adjustment-free and cleaning-free use in most applications after initial setup
  • Reduced material costs and Minimal design effort (e.g. no bypass tubes needed)
