New Rechner NormLine series of sensors from Rechner USA, Sanborn, N.Y., is designed to be low cost while being superior to standard capacitive sensors on the market. Made in North America, they feature a recessed, 20-turn potentiometer for more precise adjustment to detect product level and ignore dust build-up. Rechner will exhibit the sensors next month at NPE2015.

Normline DC models also have simultaneous NO and NC outputs, which avoid the need for users to stock two different models. There is also a larger-diameter M32 which offers a 20% greater sensing range with just a 2-mm larger diameter.
