Smart M12 Capacitive
Proximity Sensors with
IO-Link Communications

April 2024 - Carlo Gavazzi is excited to introduce three new series of M12 Capacitive Sensors with IO-Link Communications. Based on our 4th generation TRIPLESHIELD™ sensors, these CA12 Series Sensors represent the ideal solution for industrial automation equipment in applications where sensing performance must be continuously and accurately monitored and logged. Semiconductor and printing applications benefit from this kind of data for accurate detection of different sized objects, shapes, and dielectric values.

Smart M12 Capacitive Proximity Sensors with IO-Link Communications

These sensors have been designed to flexibly adapt to industrial applications. A housing option is available for every application – PBT for less challenging environments, AISI316L stainless steel for strength, and PEEK offering a smooth surface to reduce accumulation of dust or liquids. In addition to the full range of technical features provided by our capacitive sensor families, the IO-Link communication allows additional advanced data, such as: QoR (Quality of Run), QoT (Quality of Teach), temperature and dust alarms, and diagnostic parameters. With this information, predictive maintenance can be scheduled before sensors fail which increases uptime. Finally, the M12 Capacitive Sensors with IO-Link Communications are fully programmable and customizable via IO-Link.

Main technical features include:

The M12 Capacitive Sensors with IO-Link Communications are the best choice for applications requiring accurate detection and data monitoring. Besides the M12 style sensors being used in the Semiconductor and Printing industries, capacitive sensors can also be used in the Plastics, Packaging, Conveying, Agriculture, Wood, and Food & Beverage industries.
