Carlo Gavazzi ICB series features eco-friendly materials and high performance.
Carlo Gavazzi announced its ICB series, a generation of inductive proximity sensors. The series features a high performance potting material made from recycled corn by-product, which features a higher resistance to mechanical stress, the company says. In addition, the ICB series features an air-core sensing coil, which replaces traditional ferrites and coils. This new coil has a higher immunity to magnetic fields than traditional coils and can withstand higher vibration levels and impacts because it has no ferrite coil.
The new ICB Series is available in standard and double distance sensing ranges, with nickel-brass housings in long and short barrel lengths. The three-wire sensors are available in normally opened or closed NPN or PNP outputs. Connection options include a two meter PVC cable or a convenient M12 disconnect plug. The first phase of the ICB Series will be available in the M12 diameter size, followed by M8, M18, and M30 diameters, in the coming months.
