Sick CM18 PTFE Capacitive Proximity Sensors

Sick CM18 PTFE Capacitive Proximity Sensors

Sick's CM18 PTFE is a capacitive proximity sensor which is particularly suited to checking the fill level of acids, alkalis or solvents.

The CM18 PTFE sensor can also be used to detect all powdery, granulated, liquid and solid materials even through plastic walls and can also be used for proximity detection in aggressive environments with fumes and mists.

The PTFE housing of the proximity sensor is resistant to almost all chemicals and organic solvents.

Sick CM18 PTFE Capacitive Proximity Sensors - Features & Benefits

  • M18 - Cylindrical housing
  • Operating distance up to 8 mm
  • Best-in-class electromagnetic compatibility
  • Short-circuit, reverse polarity, and power-up pulse suppression protection
  • LED status indicator
  • IP 67 enclosure rating
  • Complementary output function
  • PTFE housing with M18 x 1 mm
