January 2019 - Over the next few months, CARLO GAVAZZI will be unveiling many new IO-Link products, programming devices and accessory items, such as Inductive Proximity Sensors, Capacitive Proximity Sensors, a game-changing Smart Configurator and then in the early Spring, we'll roll out some IO-Link Masters. If you're not familiar with IO-Link and what it is, the IO-Link organisers have produced a very nice video and brochure, which you can find here: IO-Link Video and IO-Link Brochure

In this email blast, we are excited to announce the launch of our new IBS, ICS and ICB Series Inductive Proximity Sensors with integrated IO-Link communications.

The IBS 04 & ICS 05 and 08 Series represent the ideal solution for industrial automation applications where space is limited, but long switching distance is needed. They are available in robust 4mm, M5 or M8 stainless steel housings, with an M8 plug or two metre PVC cable.

The new generation of the ICB 12, 18 and 30 Series are a comprehensive family of high performance inductive proximity sensors for contactless and wear-free detection of metallic objects. They are available in durable nickel-plated brass housings, offered in three diameters: M12, M18 and M30, with an extended sensing distance range between 4 and 22 mm. They are also available with an M12 plug or two metre PVC cable.

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 then becomes fully programmable and provides the means for hundreds of configurations in one single device.

IBS 04 and ICS 05/08 Proximity Sensors with IO-Link features:

  • IP67 Stainless steel 4, M5 or M8 barrel housing
  • Sensing distance from 0.8 mm up to 4 mm
  • Flush and non-flush versions
  • Output DC 100 mA
  • NPN or PNP, NO or NC or programmable
  • 2 m PVC cable or M8-plug
  • Up to 2kHz (M8) or 6kHz (4 or M5) operating freq.
  • Adjustable sensing distance and hysteresis and configurable output
  • Clearly visible LED with diagnostic functions
  • Operating temp.: -25C to +80C
  • IO-Link communication V 1.1

ICB 12/18/30 Proximity Sensors with IO-Link features:

  • IP67 Nickel-plated brass M12, M18 or M30 cylindrical threaded barrel housings
  • Sensing distance from 4 mm to 22 mm
  • Flush and non-flush versions
  • Output DC 200 mA
  • 2 m PVC cable or M12-plug
  • Up to 2 kHz operating frequency
  • Adjustable sensing distance and hysteresis and configurable output
  • Operating temp.: -25C to +70C and -40C to +70C for M12-plug version
  • IO-Link communication V 1.1

The IO-Link inductive sensors were designed for use in specific markets such as Plastic & Rubber, Material Handling, Packaging and Machine Tool, providing the ideal solutions for demanding application needs.

The Inductive Proximity Sensors with IO-Link are available from Carlo Gavazzi's network of sales offices and distributors in the Americas, or at www.GavazziOnline.com. More details on these new products can be found from the links at the bottom of this email blast.
