Capacitive thread sensors for demanding installation scenarios
Micro-Epsilon has extended its product range of capacitive displacement and distance sensors by capacitive thread sensors. These are not intended for clamping but are screwed into a thread. This opens up numerous application possibilities, e.g. when mounting on walls or in bore holes.
Capacitive sensors from Micro-Epsilon are now available with a thread. For measurement tasks where the standard sensors cannot be clamped, non-contact displacement, distance and position measurements can be easily carried out using the new threaded sensors. They are specially designed for machine building applications where the sensors must be mounted at a defined distance e.g. on walls, in bore holes or even very deep drill holes. Capacitive thread sensors can also be mounted on thin walls using two lock nuts on both on the inside and outside.
Due to the integrated plug-in connection, capacitive thread sensors from Micro-Epsilon are easy to install. Conventional capacitive sensors are equipped with a permanently integrated cable that is twisted when screwing the cable in. However, the sensors from Micro-Epsilon are screwed in first and then connected with the cable via the integrated plug-in connection. capaNCDT sensors stand out due to their long-term stability, reliability and temperature stability. Furthermore, they offer other advantages such as extremely high reliability and stable measurements down to the high precision nanometer range.
Due to their innovative technology, they can also be applied in harsh industrial environments, as well as being suitable for clean room and ultra-high vacuum applications.
