Capacitive sensors for displacement, distance and position


Capacitive sensors are designed for non-contact measurement of displacement, distance and position, as well as for thickness measurement. Due to their ag亚游国际官网 signal stability and resolution, capacitive displacement sensors are applied in laboratories and industrial measurement tasks. In production control, for example, capacitive sensors measure film thickness and application of the adhesive. Installed in machines, they monitor displacement and tool positions.

  • Non-contact measurement of displacement, distance and thickness as well as on electrical conductors and insulators
  • Unmatched accuracy for laboratories and industry
  • Customer-specific sensors and controllers
  • All capaNCDT sensors, cables and controllers are fully compatible
  • Versatile application possibilities due to comprehensive product range
  • The very latest controller technology ensures ease of use

Unique precision with innovative technology

The special sensor design, triaxial sensor cable and innovative controller technology result in a perfectly matched measurement system. Therefore, capaNCDT measurement systems stand for ag亚游国际官网 precision and signal stability. Even in industrial applications, capacitive sensors achieve resolutions in the submicrometre range.

Customer-specific sensors and OEM ag亚游国际官网 volume applications

We adapt our measurement system to customer-specific measurement tasks according to your instructions, e.g. design, target calibration, cable lengths, modified measuring ranges or sensors with integrated controller. Learn more about sensor adjustments.

Vacuum and clean room applications

Capacitive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are often used in vacuum and clean room applications where they achieve resolutions in the subnanometer range in particle-free surroundings. For vacuum applications, Micro-Epsilon offers special sensors, cables and feed-through accessories. These sensors and cables are particle-free to a ag亚游国际官网 degree and used in clean rooms up to clean room class ISO1.

ag亚游国际官网 interference immunity against magnetic fields

For environments with strong magnetic fields, Micro-Epsilon offers sensors and sensor cables which are made from non-magnetic materials such as titanium and stainless steel. The shielding achieved by the triaxial design provides extremely ag亚游国际官网 immunity to interference.

Full compatibility: sensor and controller exchange without calibration

capaNCDT sensors, cables and controllers can be interchanged quickly and easily. Due to their innovative technology, additional calibration and linearization is not required. Easy interchangeability of capaNCDT components and the simple replacement of sensors with different measuring ranges can be carried out on site within a short time frame. Micro-Epsilon offers the worldwide largest variety of combinations in capacitive displacement measurement.

Modern and user-friendly controller technology

The modern capaNCDT controllers are equipped with different interfaces such as analog, Ethernet and EtherCAT. Capacitive measurement systems can be easily adjusted using a web interface displayed via a web browser. The controller is connected to a PC via an Ethernet interface. Settings, filters and arithmetic functions are subsequently stored directly in the controller.
