Carlo Gavazzi releases capacitive proximity sensors with integrated IO-Link
January 29, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
January 29, 2019 – Carlo Gavazzi has launched capacitive proximity sensors with integrated IO-Link.
Based on the company’s fourth generation of TRIPLESHIELD sensors, the CA18CA and CA30CA series can be used for automation applications where sensor flexibility or sensing performance needs to be constantly and accurately monitored and logged. The sensors are housed in robust IP69K certified housings, which are ECOLAB approved.
With IO-Link sensor communications, each sensor becomes fully programmable and customizable, allowing more than half a million setting combinations. The IO-Link enables additional advanced functionalities such as quality of run, quality of teach and diagnostic parameters.
The capacitive proximity sensors with IO-Link are IP69K certified in M18 and M30 housings, with programmable sensing distance and hysteresis. The sensors also have configurable output/inputs, and temperature and dust alarm outputs, with adjustable set points.
