capaTEC® Level Sensors

EBE Level Sensors for Precision and Reliability

With the capaTEC® level sensor, EBE sensors + motion offers a capacitive and non-invasive sensor for liquids and solids. This is ideal for OEM and high-volume products. Our planar, capacitive sensors are ready for immediate use and are particularly suitable for aqueous liquids or liquids with high permittivity.

The EBE capaTEC® level sensor is particularly suitable for aqueous liquids and those with high permittivity. With an impressive measuring distance of up to 6 mm to the tank, the sensor provides continuous, non-contact level measurement. It does not come into contact with the medium. This feature eliminates complex build-up on the tank container and contamination of the medium by the sensor. Easy implementation in various applications is an outstanding advantage of our level sensors. A printed circuit board, which can be attached directly to the tank, contains everything you need. The sensor is equipped with a common connector. It provides data over the entire measuring range of the electrodes via PWM or I2C.


The Advantages of EBE Level Sensors at a Glance:

  • Detection of a continuous level of aqueous media with air gap up to 6 mm.
  • Contact-free, wear-free and reliable measurements without direct contact with the medium.
  • Maintenance-free sensor solutions that work reliably even in the presence of contamination or biofilms.
  • Easy integration with other applications due to compact design and common connector.
  • Different models, such as the LCPB025 with a 25mm sensor area or the LCPB096 with a 96mm sensor area, can be flexibly adapted to different requirements.

Our LCPB series of level sensors are based on the second generation of the patented capaTEC® technology. This innovative technology detects only the differential capacitance between the electrodes. This makes the sensors extremely insensitive to interference. The sensors have built-in temperature and humidity compensation. This enables them to deliver accurate measurements in fluctuating environmental conditions.

EBE Level Sensor Evaluation Kit – Quick Introduction to the Application


We offer the EBE level sensor evaluation kit for immediate readiness for use.

This includes:

  • Sensors with the dimensions 25mm (38x25mm) and 96mm (33x100mm)
  • JST plug-in connection incl. Interface-Box (5 V)

The data is transmitted via PWM, UART or I2C interface. This allows customers to test the performance of the level sensors in their own applications. The download link for the associated EBE Sensor Control Software can be found in our Download Center.
