A capacitance probe is a point level indicator, commonly used for high or low level detection in a bin, tank or silo. BinMaster capacitance probes offer fail-safe operation, “quick-set” calibration, plus interference-free operation–working far below the RF level of 9 KHz at just 6 KHz–so they will not interfere with two-way radios or other equipment operating in the radio spectrum.BinMaster’s capacitance probes are an...
