ifm efector® raises the bar in sensing plastics materials. For years, ifm capacitive level sensors have been a proven solution for applications on loaders, blenders and grinders in the plastics processing industry.
Traditional capacitive sensors can detect high-density materials with high-moisture content. However, plastic materials are now being dried at higher temperatures producing very low moisture content. The resulting materials can cause sensing problems for traditional capacitive sensors.
ifm efector’s new KN level sensor incorporates improved capacitive sensing electrodes and patented circuitry to detect lowmoisture, low-density materials. Combined, these innovations enable the KN sensor to perform in today’s plastic processing applications.
