Carlo Gavazzi TRIPLESHIELD sensor line features improved immunity to dust, humidity, and EMI.
CARLO GAVAZZI launched its 4th Generation TRIPLESHIELD CA18CA capacitive proximity sensors. In addition to improved compensation for dust and humidity, an optional Dust Alarm Output gives an early warning of accumulation on the face of the sensor. The CA18CA Series is designed for harsh environments, providing IP67 and IP69K protection, ECOLAB approval for chemical resistance, and the sensing face can withstand up to 248ºF (120°C). An optional Temperature Alarm Output warns the user if the sensing face surface exceeds 140ºF (60°C). The CA18CA sensors are available in a range of configurations and are cULus and ECOLAB approved.
