Capacitive Controller provides precision distance measurement.
Press Release Summary:
July 21, 2014 - Offering resolution of 0.015% FSO at bandwidth of 1 kHz, capaNCDT 6110 is suitable for measuring displacement, distance, and position. Sensor and target act as electrodes of plate-type capacitor, and change of distance between plates influences total system capacity. Distance to measurement object may be determined proportionally via amplitude of alternating voltage on sensor. Applications include automation systems, semiconductor production, mechanical engineering, medicine, and test cells.

Cost-Effective, Precision Distance Measurement
Press release date: July 21, 2014
A new capacitive controller provides a combination of technical advantages and low cost. A compact sensor and user-friendly handling make the capaNCDT 6110 sensor suitable for measuring displacement, distance and position in a diverse range of applications, from test cells to highly automated environments.
The new capaNCDT 6110 is successor to the capaNCDT 6100. The compact controller stands out due its high performance and low cost, which makes it particularly suitable for OEM and high volume applications. System resolution is 0.015 % FSO at a bandwidth of 1 kHz. The standard system components are available from stock. The capaNCDT 6110 is compatible with all sensors of the capaNCDT series.
Capacitive displacement measurement is one of the most precise methods of non-contact displacement measurement. The sensor and target act as electrodes of an ideal plate-type capacitor. The change of distance between the plates influences the total system capacity. The distance to the measurement object may be determined proportionally via the amplitude of the alternating voltage on the sensor. Typical capaNCDT 6110 applications can be found in automation systems, semiconductor production, mechanical engineering, medicine and test cells.
