Capacitive Level transmitter






Intrinsically safe construction(i3nG5)


Capacitive level transmitters are available with a series of models such as Straight-rod probe type, Flat probe type, Wire type and etc. which are mainly suitable for measuring the insulating material.


Loss of electrical capacitance during measurement is an intrinsic problem that plagues conventional capacitive level transmitters. To overcome it, DITECH's Non-induction Electrostatic Capacitance Series employs innovative technology to prevent capacity losses during the measurement process both within the meter circuitry and along the non-induction extension cable to the detector. Thanks to this technology, these devices offer unprecedented accuracy and stability.
The Non-Induction Electrostatic Capacitance Series also combines a totally new measurement concept with advanced electronic technology, and it is capable of extremely delicate measurements and inductive viscous material measurements.

Moreover, the line-up include these transmitters performing well as a water level meter, a liquid level meter or a interface meter.

Every material has intrinsic electrical characteristics such as permittivity and conductivity. This transmitter detects electrostatic capacitance changes generated by the rise or fall of the level of the measured substance in the tank, and then converts these changes into an integrated signal. A variety of meters and detectors are available according to the measurement condition.


With conventional electrostatic type level transmitter, capacitance loss and capacitance distribution loss are intrinsic problems. Our models eliminates both of these problems by means of a non-induction structure. The meter internal wiring, the detector and the extension cable are constructed with an inherent capacitance of zero, so there is no need to compensate for capacitance loss or distribution loss. Moreover, because it contains no unstable elements, this device exhibits no significant changes with time or variation in temperature coefficient, thereby ensuring consistently high measurement accuracy.

Operation is simple, requiring only ZERO and SPAN adjustment. And the models also feature a built-in distribution capacitance and conductance compensation circuit to allow use with a diversity of both new and already installed detectors of various compositions.

    1. Non-induction system designed to be totally unaffected by capacitance losses.

    2. Suitable for a wide range of substances from powders with very low dielectric constants to highly viscous conductive materials.

    3. Totally electronic system with no moving parts ensures a long working life.

    4. Wide operating temperature range allows use in diverse environments including under both super-high pressure and vacuum conditions. (Depends on the specifications)

    5. Wide measurement range - Min. 0 mm to Max. 100 m.

    6. An increased degree of design freedom make it possible to adjust the electrode shape to match the measurement location conditions.

Model QBS
(Non-explosion-proof type)
<Separated transducer type>

This model is composed of detector unit, transducer and special cable.


Model NSB
(Intrinsically safe construction / i3nG5)
<Totally separated detector unit type>

This model is composed of detector unit, transducer, relay power source and special cable that is 4 core control cable. As the transducer is designed to be installed in a dangerous area, the special cable can be made short enough to minimize picked-up noises, thus permitting a stable performance to be obtainable. As to performance, this model has the same characteristics as those of Model QBS.
