Suitability for Use

The following external influences affect capacitive sensors:

  • Electromagnetic fields
  • Cross-talk caused by electromagnetic fields
  • Material-related influences that contribute to detection fluctuations
  • Size of objects being detected
  • Sensor size
  • Passing speed
  • High and low temperatures 
  • Humidity (rainwater, splashing water, relative humidity)
  • Pressure, heat, dirt, etc.

Accordingly, the installation and ambient conditions and any normative requirements must be taken into account for reliable operation of capacitive sensors.
