Proximity sensors with integrated IO
19 September 2018
Carlo Gavazzi has launched a new range of inductive proximity Sensors with integrated IO Link. The ICS and ICB range offer M8 to M30 barrel sizes, the IO link provides multiple solutions to common factory automation dilemmas.
IO Link can provide many advantages such as standardized and reduced wiring, broader range of available data and configurations, remote configuration, monitoring and diagnostics as well as easy replacement.
The ICS Series is available in a robust stainless-steel housing and has an operating distance between 2 and 4mm. There are flush and non-flush versions and short and long body housings with 2m PVC cable or M8-disconnect plug versions. The ICS family includes NPN or PNP, NO or NC programmable to suit the requirement and operating frequency up to 2kHZ operating frequency, clearly visible LED diagnostic function and an operating temperature of -25°C to +80°C. It also includes adjustable sensing distances and hysteresis as well as a configurable output.
The ICB Series is available in nickel-plated brass cylindrical threaded barrel housing and has an operating distance between 4 and 22mm, with flush and non-flush versions with 2m PVC cable or M12 plugs. Operating frequency up to 2kHZ operating frequency and includes adjustable sensing distances and hysteresis as well as a configurable output and operating temperature of -25°C to +70°C and -40°C to +70°C for M12 plug versions.
Both the ICS and ICB Series can be the perfect solution for all factory and automation applications, and are CE, UL, CSA AND IO-Link certified.
