Capacitance Probe

A capacitance probe is a point level indicator, commonly used for high or low level detection in a bin, tank or silo. BinMaster capacitance probes offer fail-safe operation, “Quick-Set” calibration, plus interference-free operation – working far below the RF level of 9 KHz at just 6 KHz – so they will not interfere with two-way radios or other equipment operating in the radio spectrum. Standard features include a triple-thread, screw-off cover to allow easy access to internal components, dual conduit entries to simplify wiring, and an FDA-recognized powder coat finish. The dual time delay feature allows the user to set flexible time delays up to 30 seconds for covered and uncovered conditions.
