Lanbao CR18SCN08DNO Capacitive Proximity Sensor - 8mm

ID: 3523_0
Recommended for new designs: Phidgets Inc. is not the original manufacturer for this product, but we intend to sell it (or a similar replacement with a compatible form, fit and function) for as long as it is available from the supplier.

This capacitive sensor will switch when it detects metals and some other materials within 8mm.

This capacitive proximity sensor is used for non-contact detection of metallic and non-metallic objects such as liquid, powder and granular materials; it can also detect materials through glass or plastic walls.

Note that the standard detecting distance is based on a standard shape approaching the sensor in a standard way. The real detecting distance will vary depending on the shape, thickness and type of material being detected.

You can adjust the operating distance by turning a screw placed on the side of the sensor.

Comes packaged with

  • 2 plastic rings
  • a screwdriver


You can use a 12V sensor adapter to connect this sensor to your InterfaceKit or Hub. See the Connection & Compatibility tab for more details.

12V Sensor Adapter

This sensor requires a 12V power supply and outputs a 0-5V signal depending on wheter the sensor is triggered. For a simple way to provide 12 volts, you can use our 12V sensor adapter. It uses the 5V supply from your InterfaceKit or Hub and steps it up to 12V while simultaneously passing the 0-5V signal from the sensor into the Phidget cable.

To connect the sensor, connect the wires as follows:

Function 35231144
+12V Brown +12V
Ground Blue GND
Data Black ANLG
