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

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

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.


Product Features

  • Detects Metal, nonmetal materials (liquid, powder and granular materials)
  • Standard Detecting Distance: 8mm
  • Normally Open
  • DC wire output
  • Requires a 12 to 30VDC Power Supply


This sensor connects to a Digital Input on any of the following products:

  • 1018 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8
  • 1019 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 w/6 Port Hub
  • 1202 - PhidgetTextLCD
  • 1203 - PhidgetTextLCD
  • 1070 - PhidgetSBC
  • 1012 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/16/16
  • 1060 - PhidgetMotorControl LV
  • 1063 - PhidgetStepper Bipolar 1-Motor


This is how you connect the 3523 to a Phidget board that does not have 12V power such as the 1018, 1012, 1202, and 1203 using our 12VDC Power Supply:

  • Connect the +12 wire from the Power Supply (that's the one with the white line) to the 3523 Brown wire.
  • Connect the 3523 Black wire to a Digital Input on the 1018.
  • Connect the Power supply Ground Wire and the 3523 Blue wire to the Digital Input Ground connector on the 1018.


Note: When the 3523 is connected to a 1012, it will behave as a Normally Close (NC) sensor instead of Normally Open (NO).

For boards that have power input, if the supplied power is within 12-24VDC, the +V line can be connected to the terminal block, powering the sensor from the Phidget. The 1019, 1070, 1060 and 1063 all accept external power.

  • 2 plastic rings
  • A screwdriver
