The widest range of Rechner’s capacitive Sensors

Check Rechner’s range

Rechner is based in the Black Forest in Germany manufactures a significant range of capacitive sensors.  The sensors which we have shown here are predominately for material detection and proximity.   Rechner also manufactures a range of specialised sensors, for e.g. for high temperature applications, for sticky materials using PTFE which also allows for their use in the food and beverage application.

Capacitive sensors (KAS) react to metals and non-metals that exceed a specific capacitance on approaching the active surface. The sensing distance with respect to a specific material is greater the higher the dielectric constant. The sensors are used to detect objects, for counting functions and for all types of level monitoring applications in liquid materials (i.e. water, oil, acids, glue) and bulk materials (i.e. powder, granulate, pellets).

Rechner’s website is most innovative, where on has the facility to select the sensor based upon their technical specification, such as size, output type, sensing distance, temperature range,  material etc.  Shoulf you not find the sensor your require below simply click onto Rechner’s capacitive sensors pages here, make your selection and contact us.
