Capacitive sensors KS – highly accurate even under difficult measurement circumstances

08.03.2017

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik offers an excellent solution for measurement tasks, when high-resolution sensors are required to measure on challenging targets in difficult environments: The capacitive sensor series KS.

As the target's material and surface have no influence on the measurement, the sensors are ideal for thickness, distance, or position determination. A typical application is the quality control of precision mechanics.


Capacitive Sensor

Another big advantage of capacitive sensors is that they are capable to measure independent of the target's temperature.

Manufacturing tolerances of hot work pieces can be checked and even controlling the abrasion of brake discs under load is possible.

The sensors are suitable for a temperature range of -50 up to +200°C. They even work in high vacuum, or in a radioactive environment. Other typical applications for capacitive sensors is the use in squeezers, motors, or climatic chambers.

The KS capacitive sensors are available with measurement ranges from 0.05 mm, up to maximum 10.0 mm. The dynamic resolution is 0.01 %.

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik also offers customised solutions. For example, the sensor head can be adapted to the target or to the measurement conditions.

It is also possible to adjust the output signal of the evaluation electronics, so that the implementation into the customer's existing system is easy.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
