  • Capacitance point level detection with active build-up compensation

Solicap FTI55 is a fully/partly insulated and robust rod probe for point level detection of fine-grained to coarse-grained bulk solids. It offers maximum reliability due to its active build-up compensation and is suited for a wide range of applications thanks to numerous certificates and approvals. Due to its robust construction, it can also be used to provide accurate measurements in applications with very high lateral loads up to 300Nm.


  • Highest safety and reliability due to robust design for demanding process conditions

  • Cost savings thanks to easy and fast commissioning as calibration is performed at the press of a button

  • Universal application thanks to wide range of certificates and approvals

  • Two-stage overvoltage protection against static discharges from the silo

  • Active build-up compensation for bulk solids with caking tendency (under development)

  • Increased safety due to permanent automatic monitoring of electronics

  • Reduction in storage costs thanks to easy-to-shorten rod model (for partial insulation) and rope model (for partial and full insulation)

Field of application

For applications with very high lateral loads up to 300Nm. Fieldgate and Solicap represent a solution for material provisioning and logistical optimization (inventory control)
