The models PAC-30U and PDC-30 proximity switches are solid state point level devices used to detect the absence or presence of bulk solids. The compact configuration makes this product ideal for tight spaces or low cost level detection. As material comes in contact with, or in close proximity to, the PAC-30U or PDC-30, an internal solid state switch is activated. The PAC-30U is AC operated (20-265 VAC) and is universal in that it is switch selectable for either normally open or normally closed operation. The PDC-30 is DC operated (10-40 VDC) and is available in either PNP or NPN configuration, each of which can be wired in either a normally open or normally closed operation mode.

Principle of Operation

The PAC-30U and PDC-30 are RF capacitance-type level controls, which operate by detecting the electrical effect of the
surrounding material such as air, plastic pellets or powders. A radio frequency is applied to the proximity switch sensing region and is continually analyzed to determine the influence of the surrounding environment. Since all materials have dielectric constants
and conductance values that are different from that of air, the resultant impedance seen by the radio frequency changes whenever material approaches or contacts the sensing region. This influence is measured within the circuitry and compared with the reference point set by the sensitivity adjustment, which determines how much influence must be present before the output changes.
