Capacitive sensors for object detection

Available in:

70 versions

Our capacitive sensors reliably detect objects over long distances. They are suitable for non-contacting detection of solid bodies made of glass, wood, metal, plastic, composite materials, liquids, and bulk materials. This is achievable through plastic walls and other non-metallic packaging.

The capacitive sensors are not affected by color, dust, and reflective, glossy, or transparent surfaces.

The capacitive sensors from Balluff are available in various configurations, with a wide variety of plug and cable options. Choose from switching or analog output or with IO-Link interface. Particularly economical versions are also available.


  • Capacitive sensors in plastic and stainless steel versions for detecting media with a low dielectric constant over long distances
  • In compact configurations from 6.5 mm and flat configurations, such as disc configurations, with switching distances of up to 25 mm
  • Flush mountable and adjustable via potentiometer or cable
  • IO-Link available
