Cost-effective, precision distance measurement

The new capaNCDT 6110 is successor to the capaNCDT 6100. The compact controller stands out due its high performance and low cost, which makes it particularly suitable for OEM and high volume applications. System resolution is 0.015 % FSO at a bandwidth of 1 kHz. The standard system components are available from stock. The capaNCDT 6110 is compatible with all sensors of the capaNCDT series.

Capacitive displacement measurement is one of the most precise methods of non-contact displacement measurement. The sensor and target act as electrodes of an ideal plate-type capacitor. The change of distance between the plates influences the total system capacity. The distance to the measurement object may be determined proportionally via the amplitude of the alternating voltage on the sensor. Typical capaNCDT 6110 applications can be found in automation systems, semiconductor production, mechanical engineering, medicine and test cells.
