Capacitive Dust Sentry Bin Level Indicator


High-performance capacitive sensor takes the guesswork out of when to empty your dust collector or pre-separator’s dust bin. This sensor uses touch proximity sensing to automatically detect when the dust bin is full and alerts the user with a high visibility strobe light – perfect for busy and noisy work environments.

Capacitive sensing technology detects when the dust level in the bin is physically touching the sensor. It can be installed vertically into the lid or horizontally into the wall of the dust bin – making it ideal for odd-shaped containers that aren’t suitable for optical or ultrasonic sensors. The Capacitive Dust Sentry is also ideal for use with very fine dusts (including silica/concrete) that would otherwise be too cloudy for optical sensors to accurately detect. Strobe indicator light can be mounted up to 8 feet away from the sensor for maximum visibility in the shop.

Automatically Alerts When The Bin Is Full

When you’re hard at work in your shop, the last thing you want to discover is an overfilled dust container and corresponding dust-packed filter. Oneida Air Systems’ Capacitive Sensor is designed to automatically alert you when your dust bin is full and needs to be emptied. Once the dust in the bin reaches the sensor, a high visibility strobe light alerts the operator to empty the bin.

Benefits & Features

  • Proximity sensor works in any shape/size container, even narrow/squat containers that would not be suitable for the effective range of other sensor types.
  • Compatible with any type of dust (wood, silica, granular powders, etc).
  • High intensity strobe light can be mounted up to 8 feet away from the sensor for maximum operator visibility.
  • More visible and reliable to use than traditional drum viewing windows.
