The OPTISWITCH 6700 is a capacitance level switch for hygienic and general industrial applications requiring IO-Link communication. It detects high or low level and is therefore ideally suited for overfill and empty tank prevention or for dry-run protection of pumps. The device is also designed for the detection of liquid-liquid interfaces or change of media characteristics.
In addition to standard G or NPT male threads, the frequency sweep level switch comes with G thread for hygienic adapters. This makes it a powerful solution for level detection in food applications, e.g. with water, beer, cream as well as viscous or sticky products such as honey. Even sugar, flour or other dry solids can be detected. Due to its resistance to cleaning agents and steam, the level switch also makes a perfect choice for monitoring CIP and SIP cleaning procedures.
Level switch with IO-Link communication for automated sensor configuration
Problem solver for adhesions and difficult products: level detection not affected by product build-up, foam or condensate
Two switching outputs for different trigger thresholds allow monitoring of different processes or measured media
Switch points can be indicated by 360° multicolour LEDs: available with transparent polycarbonate collar or with the LEDs collar-protected by a metal crown
Stainless steel housing with PEEK sensor material
Optimal sensor shape: Easy-to-clean, minimised risk of clogging by sticky products
Maintenance-free, can be installed in any mounting position
Wide variety of hygienic adapters available
