Gavazzi is excited to expand upon the next generation of our state of the art ICB Series inductive proximity sensors. In addition to the recently
launched M12 housing, we now offer industry standard M18 and M30 housings. The ICB Series continues to raise the bar for inductive technology.
An all-new microprocessor provides greater
reliability and repeatability, along with higher switching frequencies than possible with
previous models. It also provides the opportunity for greater customization options, such
as programmable outputs and programmable switching frequencies.
|In addition, the ICB12
and ICB18 have two further innovations. The first is an
air-core sensing coil, which replaces the traditional ferrite coil and allows higher
immunity to magnetic fields, and a higher resistance to vibration and impact. The second
is an eco-friendly potting material, which provides higher resistance to mechanical
stress, thus increasing the reliability and stability of the sensor. These result in the ICB Series being an inherently more rugged and robust solution, with a
longer lifetime than previous generations!
Key options available in the ICB Series include:
extended (2x) sensing ranges
||Short and long
cable (2m) and quick connect plug (M12) connection options
normally open and normally closed output options
LED indication(s) for output status
We are also proud to announce some
enhancements to our ICB12 models. Operating frequency has been increased from
1.5 kHz to 2.0 kHz, allowing use with high speed applications. And the LED visibility has
been improved, so that they are visible clearly from the back of the sensor in addition to
The ICB Series is cURus, CSA and CE approved, and is covered by our standard 10 year warranty
on inductive proximity sensors. They are available from our vast network of North American
sales offices and authorized distributors.
