Delavan’s Captrol 500 is a cost-effective Microcontroller Based R.F. Capacitance On/Off Switch used in powder bulk solid and liquid applications.

“One-Touch” Button Calibration

With the utilization of our Microcontroller and Delavan’s unique Auto-Cal algorithm, calibration is accomplished with a momentary touch of a button. No special tools, complicated procedures, or valuable time is needed.

Principle of Operation

The Captrol 500 Microcontroller Based Point Level Switch consists of solid-state electronics mounted in a cast-aluminum explosion-proof enclosure. The rugged sensing element utilizes a driven guard designed to eliminate the effects of material build-up or coatings that may cause false signals.

The sensing element’s “active” section is energized with an R.F. (Radio Frequency) signal approximately 2mHz. When the process level changes, a change in capacitance occurs resulting in a change in frequency. This change in frequency is compared to a preset value and after amplification, the signal is used to actuate a relay.
