Capacitive sensors gain robust housings


Carlo Gavazzi has enhanced its range of CA18CA and CA30CA TRIPLESHIELD capacitive sensor range with AISI316L stainless steel or PTFE housings making them the perfect solution in environments where acids, alkaline, solvents and other aggressive liquids or fumes are present.

Carlo Gavazzi has packaged its CA sensor family in its 4th Generation TRIPLESHIELD robust housing, complete with integrated IO-Link communication. The range now offers superior electro-magnetic immunity, temperature stability, IP69K ingress protection, exceptional chemical resistance, dust and humidity allowance, as well as being Ecolab certified.

The sensors are available in M18 or M30 sizes and in both flush and non-flush versions and their electrical outputs can be configured as PNP / NPN / Push-Pull / External input, normally open or normally closed. Timer functions can also be set, such as ON-delay, Off-delay, and one shot. While logging functions include temperatures, detection counter, power cycles and operating hours.

Variable sensing distance, hysteresis, set points and all other parameters can all be adjusted dynamically in situ and changed on-the-fly. Sensing modes can also be set to single point, two point or window mode.

Updating to an IO-Link sensor isn’t costly either and can be tailored to meet your individual needs and requirements providing you access to a multitude of configuration parameters and advanced functionalities, all whilst allowing for simple replacement of devices without little technical knowledge.

The CA18_CA30 range of capacitive IO-Link sensors has been designed for use in agriculture, food and beverage, plastic and rubber, HVAC and materials handling applications and is CE and UL certified.
