Principle

Casper works on the principle of capacitance. The probe comprises of a sense electrode, electrically isolated from the metallic tank by means of a suitable insulator. The sense electrode and the vessel wall serve as the two electrodes of a capacitor with the service material acting as the dielectric. A change in the level of material causes a change in the dielectric, which in turn causes the value of this tank capacitor to change.

Benefits
  • Customizable probe size
  • Self-diagnosis for probe and electronics.
  • Popular with a wide range of materials: low-to-high dielectric conductive materials / non-conductive material
  • Externally visible output and error indications
