Binswitch Elite Capacitive Sensor

Updated Version

Capacitance Point Level Indicator


Detects level or plug situations for bulk granular solids or liquids in tanks, bins, or silos and can be used as a plug or choke detector in chutes, conveyors and elevator legs.

4B Binswitch
Product Features: 
  • Capacitance probe; detects the presence or absence of liquids and free flowing bulk granular materials and powders such as grain, feeds, seeds and chemicals
  • Application: level indicators (tanks / silos); choke switches (chutes, conveyors, elevator legs)
  • Detects presence or absence of liquids & free-flowing bulk granular materials
  • Easy installation & self-containing
