Foil Sensor MetaPot New Optimized and Customized Type Series 2007



Korb, Germany - Metallux AG has extended the MetaPot foil sensor family towards a new optimized and customized type series - series 2007. Nowadays different foil sizes and systems can be combined to advanced measurement systems, resulting in customized applications of different relative strengths.


Based on foil technology Metallux developed new electric features, never achieved before. Generating of a "basic sensor" a complex component with many integrated functions.

  • Galvanic separated and redundand systems in only one sensor, customized characteristic outputs additional switching contacts respectively centre detection on the sensor are e. G. possible.

  • Application of printed resistors.

  • Linearization on printed circuit board ist possible up to 0,25%.

  • MetaPot foil sensor consists exclusively of UL-listed material.

On request an amplifier can assembled on the connector flex. For electric contacts twistsafe and lockable plugs are in the delivery programme.


Furthermore the already small hight is now reduced to < 0,6mm. Changing Metallux standard IP 65 to IP 66 is possible regarding the sealing of the electrical conncetion. This makes this sensor ideal for critical, humid and warm environment.


"In the near future we will continue to expand our product range of foil sensors. Especially customized solutions are in focus in order to fullfill promt and efficiently our customer's needs", says Andreas Oberascher, CEO of Metallux AG.
