Looking for Fluid Sensors? The Sick LFC is a Cost Effective Solution

The LFC capacitive level switch is a flexible, simple and, above all, cost-effective solution for point level measurement in fluid media.

When measuring containers or for dry-run protection in piping, the LFC features particularly high performance thanks to its simple installation, very easy cleaning, compact design and long service life. Due to the EHEDG- and 3-A-certified hygienic design and a process temperature of up to 135 °C, it is also perfectly suited for CIP and SIP applications. The LFC can easily display or blank foam and deposits.
