KOTRON® RF CAPACITANCE PROBES


Kotron® RF Capacitance probes are available in many different configurations to handle a wide variety of application conditions. Generally insulated probes are used in conductive fluids (dielectric >10) and bare probes are used in non-conductive fluids (dielectric <10).

Operating Principle


As the level changes in a tank, the amount of capacitance between the probe and the tank wall (ground) changes. This capacitance is converted to a level (or volume) measurement.
