FT6001Capcation Box

publish time:2017-12-23 11:01:24


FT6001 C Box is a capacitance substitution device, which is used to simulate the actual level in the vessel as seen by the FIT capacitance probes of RF admittance level switch and continuous system. The FT6001 Capacitance box is used when easy level calibration or bench testing of electronic units is desired, makes calibration more effectively and smoothly.   


This product is comprised of one capacitance selector box and one three concentric-shielded cable. The unit has two ranges, which allows for simulation of large capacitance ranges and also allows for greater accuracy in the lower capacitance ranges.

It is also has a Knapsack option is available if needed.



》》》》Operation Principle

  The product is assembled with a tunable capacitor, a group of fixed value capacitors on a push button assembly and a range selector switch. Rocker switch divides the capacitance value in two range, when it is in “O” position,  it means capacitance in low range, which could select a capacitance value between 0 to 100 pF. When it is in ”I” position, that means capacitance in high range, which could select capacitance values from 0 to 99999pF. Since RF admittance and Potential Compensating technology use a driven shield technology, the C Box is internally shielded and a SHD terminal is added for the connection to the level product shield wire. This increases the stability of the C box and eliminates electrical interference. The product output capacitance is the capacitance between the PRB and GND terminals AND THE COAX CABLE.
