Capacitec launches Capteura® 508-SW Multi-channel Switching Amplifier for Capacitive Displacement and Gap Sensing Systems

August 16, 2016, Ayer, MA, USA - Capacitec, Inc. (Capacitec) (, a global leader for 30 years in the design and manufacture of non-contact capacitive displacement, gap, bore and parallelism sensing technologies for scientific and industrial customers, announces the launch of a brand new line of Multi-channel Non-Contact Displacement, Gap and Bore Sensing capacitive amplifier. Where multiple channels are required at lower speeds, the new low cost multiple channel signal conditioner returns very high linearity & stability of individual channels. The system eliminates the additional cost of any external A/D converter cards while offering direct interface to PLC controllers via Ethernet. The compact switching configuration is ideal for a large number of industrial process displacement, gap and bore measurements.

  • 8 displacement channels, for 4 or 2 diameter calibrations stored internally (max)
  • Integral 18bit Analog to Digital Converter with 0.05% FS linearity
  • Microprocessor based compatible with all Capacitec Probes
  • Bluetooth and Ethernet optional, USB power standard
  • Optional Ethernet IP Software and Command set software
  • Compact enclosure: 9.5” X 4.25” X 1.25” (241mm X 108mm X 32mm)

Typical Applications:

  • Quad sensor gap head adjustments for a high speed inkjet printer head - to flat print surface
  • Dual diameter bore gauge, optional bi-level quad bore gauge.
  • Alignment of dual roller parallelism tool
