corTEC® Level Sensors

Precise Level Measurement of Demanding Media


In the field of capacitive sensor technology, EBE presents its high-quality corTEC® level sensors, perfect for level measurement of hard-to-detect media. These products are particularly suitable for:

  • The detection of media with low conductivities.
  • The measurement of viscous, adherent and paste-like media in the food & beverage industry as well as for liquid, granular and powdery media and a wide variety of bulk solids.

Advantages of Level Measurement with corTEC® Sensors

The corTEC® level sensors are equipped with an automatic calibration function to minimize short and long-term measurement errors. These versatile sensors can be implemented as limit switches or continuous sensors and offer various designs, including:

  • Immersed measuring caps for non-conductive tank materials or flat mounting on the inside of the tank.
  • As point level switches screwed into conductive tank walls, optionally with stainless steel tip for granular media or with PEAK or plastic cap.
  • Sensors for non-contact detection of fill levels from the outside.

Product details of the standard sensor LCRB0001D:

  • Optimized for point level switch applications
  • Accuracy typ. +/-1mm
  • Excellent sensitivity and accuracy even for substances with dielectric constants of εR <2

All technical details on LCRB001 standard sensors can be found in the data sheet.

Customised Level Measurement for Bespoke Projects

Our customer-specific sensor developments are based on specific requirements and characteristics of the customer’s application. Proven basic algorithms and technologies, such as corTEC®, are adapted to individual requirements.
The geometry of the sensors is precisely matched to the installation space and, thanks to close coordination with the customer’s design department, assembly and production plans are drawn up for large series. 3D field simulation allows electrodes to be optimised for operating and environmental conditions.
EBE sensors + motion implements interfaces, connectors and the form of the signal output exactly according to the customer’s requirements. As a result, our level sensors can be quickly and easily integrated into existing environments.
