The Minicap is designed for point level detection in light bulk solids with a grain size up to max. 30 mm (1.18 in) and a dielectric constant Et>1.6 e.g. grain products, flour, milk powder, animal feed, cement, chalk or gypsum.

Your Benefits
  • Complete unit consisting of the probe and electronic insert:
    • simple mounting
    • no calibration on start-up
  • Active build-up compensation
    • accurate switch point
    • high operational safety
  • Mechanically rugged
    • no wearing parts
    • long operating life
    • no maintenance
  • The rope probe of the Minicap FTC262 can be shortened
    • optimum matching to the measuring point
    • less stocks required
Measuring principle Point Level Detection

A metal plate at the end of the probe, within the insulation, the integrated counter-electrode and the surroundings combine to form the two electrodes of a capacitor. If the probe is covered or free of process medium, the capacitance changes and the Minicap switches.

Active Build-up Compensation

The Minicap detects build-up on the probe and compensates for its effects so that the switch point is always observed. The effects of build-up compensation depend on:

  • the thickness of the buildup on the probe,
  • the conductivity of the buildup,
  • the sensitivity setting on the electronic insert.
Measuring System

Minicap is an electronic switch. The complete measuring system consists of:

  • the Minicap FTC260 or FTC262
  • a power supply and
  • controllers, switching devices, signal transmitters (e.g. lamps, horns, PCS, PLC, etc.)
