Carlo Gavazzi's patented Tripleshield™ Capacitive Sensors have become the standard all other manufacturers are measured against. All Tripleshield™ sensors are tested to withstand electrostatic discharges up to 40 KV, line transients up to 4 KV, and airborne noise (ie. cellular phones) up to 15 V/m. Furthermore, some models have built-in humidity compensation.

Capacitive sensors will detect most materials - conductive and non-conductive. This makes them ideal for level detection in raw plastic delivery systems and in agricultural applications.

Gavazzi sensors are available in 12 mm, 18 mm, and 30 mm diameter with both AC and DC outputs. Carlo Gavazzi offers both plastic and metal housings with either a built-in cable or a connector.
