The limit switch LIMES is used to detect filling levels and for dry run protection and is suitable for liquids or paste-like and adhesive media. The measurement is effected by the media contacting the LIMES. This happens by coupling a high frequency alternating field. Because of the dielectric characteristic of the media (DK-value), the coupled alternating field changes. This leads to a change in the evaluation of the sensor, and thus to the desired registration of the media and switching an output.
