Have your fill

SICK’s CQF16 CAPACATIVE level sensor has been developed to provide a universal, non-contact solution wherever the fill level of water-based liquids must be detected in non-metallic vessels, tanks or pipes.
The ECOLAB-certified SICK CQF16 level sensor is supplied with a one-clip mounting bracket that can be fastened securely to the wall of any pipe or container. Using the capacitive measurement principle, it accurately detects water-based media regardless of foam, moisture or deposit build-up on the inside of the vessel.
The SICK CQF16 is a cost-effective alternative to continuous analogue measurement with a diverse range of fill-level detection uses. For example, it is ideal for detecting levels of oils, milk or honey in food processing machinery.
The compact CQF16 measures 16 mm x 34 mm x 8 mm and has a sensing range up to 6 mm. With a housing rated up to IP69K, and the option of M8 male connector or integral cable connection, the rugged CQF16 level sensors avoid the risk of fluid penetration in process environments. With a 100mA signal, the sensors offer a flexible choice of PNP/NPN or NO/NC switching outputs.
