CA18CA AND CA30CA CAPACITIVE PROXIMITY SENSOR SERIES WITH INTEGRATED IO-LINK COMMUNICATION

Fully customizable, high-perfomance and multi-purpose sensors providing more than half a million setting combinations.

Lainate, July 2018 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, presents two new series of capacitive sensors with integrated IO-Link communication: the CA18CA..IO and the CA30CA..IO.

Based on our 4th generation of TRIPLESHIELD™ sensors, the CA18CA and the CA30CA series represent the ideal solution for industrial automation equipment in applications where the sensing performance needs to be constantly and accurately monitored and logged.

Besides the full range of technical features provided by our capacitive sensor families, the IO-Link communication mode enables additional advanced functionalities such as: QoR (Quality of Run), QoT (Quality of Teach) and diagnostic parameters.

With IO-Link each sensor becomes fully programmable and customizable, allowing more than half a million setting combinations.

“Thanks to the integrated IO-Link interface, these capacitive sensors guarantee high-performance and maximum flexibility, meeting the requirements of the industrial automation market,” Torben Rochat, International Product Manager, states. “With this launch, Carlo Gavazzi further expands its offer for Industry 4.0, providing a new and reliable range of IO-Link capacitive sensors and thus reinforcing its position on the market.”

Developed in our Competence centre in Denmark, these IO-Link capacitive sensor series have been designed to be used in specific markets such as Plastic & Rubber, HVAC, Agriculture and Food & Beverage, providing the ideal solutions so as to perfectly fit any application need.

ICS AND ICB INDUCTIVE PROXIMITY SENSOR SERIES WITH INTEGRATED IO-LINK COMMUNICATION

Easy configuration and set-up for the ICS and ICB series, available in M8 stainless steel housing nd M12, M18 and M30 nickel plated brass housings.

Lainate, June 2018 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design,manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, presents the new ICS and ICB families with integrated IO-Link communication.

The ICS08 series represents the ideal solution for industrial automation equipment in applications where space is limited, but long switching distance is needed. It is available in a stainless steel housing, with an M8 plug and 2m PVC cable connection for flexible mounting.

The new generation of the ICB series is a complete family of high performance inductive sensors for contactless and wearfree detection of metallic objects in industrial automation applications. It is available in a nickel-plated brass housing in three diameters: M12, M18 and M30, with an extended sensing distance range between 4 and 22 mm.

Once connected to an IO-Link master, these sensors can be easily and completely configured, enabling additional advanced functionalities such as the detection counter (RPM) and the speed controller. Each sensor now becomes fully programmable and allows hundreds of configurations in one single device.

“This full range of IO-Link inductive sensors, from M8 to M30, enables us to enter Industry 4.0, as IO-Link is considered the universal “USB port” for industrial automation, and our offer will soon be enlarged with 2 other additional series,” Aldo Caputo, International Product Manager, says. “With this launch Carlo Gavazzi’s intention is to strengthen its position on the market, by providing reliable and high-performance inductive sensors with advanced technological content.”

Developed in our Competence centre in Denmark, these IO-Link inductive sensor series have been designed to meet requirements from markets such as: Plastic & rubber, Materials handling, Packaging and Machine tools, and to provide more and more tailored solutions so as to perfectly fit any application need.
