Capacitive Sensors - High Performance

XECRO’s line of capacitive sensors cover all diameters between Ø6.5 mm respectively M8 and M30.

Capacitive Sensors from the Performance Series, offer absolute best-in-class sensing distances. XECRO manufactures shielded capacitive sensors such as e.g. M8 with 2 mm sensing distance, M12 with 6 mm sensing distance and M18 with 12 mm sensing distance. Unshielded Capacitive Performance Series in M30 housings, achieve up to a 35 mm sensing distance.

In order to integrate the sensors into different environments, the diameters M12, M18 and M30 are provided with a build-in multi-turn potentiometer to adjust their sensitivity and adapt them to different application requirements. The potentiometer is also an optional extra for Ø6.5 and M8 sensors.

Standard

XECRO Standard Sensing ranges cover all common industry diameters including ☐5×5 and ☐8×8. The Standard Class of sensors represents the basic sensing distances of each size. The capacitive sensors in the Standard Class match with cost-sensitive applications where longer sensing distances are not required. Even the Standard Class sensors which are rated to be used between –20…+70 °C | -4… 158 °F come with a protection class of IP67 and are ideal for general purpose applications. Also these devices already have reverse-polarity as well as overload and short-circuit protection built-in.

Advanced

In some environments, extremely large sensing distances are essential for proper operation. Sensors from the Advanced Class offer the absolute best sensing distances of their type. XECRO builds sensors as e.g.

Sensor diameter Sensing distance Mounting Body Length
M8×1 2 mm flush
M8×1 4 mm non-flush
M12×1 6 mm flush
M12×1 10 mm non-flush
M18×1 12 mm flush
M18×1 20 mm non-flush
M30×1.5 25 mm flush
M30×1.5 35 mm non-flush
