Integrated IO Link Technology
25 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. Advantages of IO link include standardised and reduced wiring, a broader range of available data and configurations, remote configuration, monitoring and diagnostics and easy replacement.
The ICS Series is available in a robust stainless-steel housing and has an operating distance between 2 and 4mm. Available in flush and non-flush versions and short and long body housings with 2 m PVC cable or M8-disconnect plug versions. The ICS family is not short on features; and 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. Available in flush and non-flush versions with 2 m 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.
