Products Bluetooth bulk materials liquids pastes Rechner sensors

Bluetooth capacitive sensors of the 26 series from Rechner have a hemispherical active surface for level control of products with a dielectric constant as low as 1.1 εr.

The 26 series sensors detect products such as: bulk materials, like plastic granules, powder, cereals, feedstuffs; liquids, like water, juice, wine, oil, chemicals, or pharmaceutical solutions; pastes in the food processing industry, liquid gels, resins, or glue.

The Bluetooth control function provides for greater sensor sensitivity, optimal sensor adjustment, and deposits on the sensor surface.

Housing material is PTFE and a special version with flange is available. Sealing can be made with a gasket or PTFE-tape. The Bluetooth app provided by the company is for use with Android smartphones or tablets.
