Carlo Gavazzi haCarlo Gavazzi Sensorss launched the ICB Series, a generation of eco-friendly inductive proximity sensors, with advanced and innovative features.

The ICB Series features a high performance potting material that is made from recycled corn by-product, which features a higher resistance to mechanical stress, thus providing increased reliability, improved stability and a longer sensor lifetime.

Another innovation for the new ICB Series is the air-core sensing coil, which replaces traditional ferrites and coils. This new coil has a higher immunity to magnetic fields than traditional coils. The sensor can withstand higher vibration levels and impacts than older inductive proximity sensors because it has no ferrite coil, which is susceptible to cracking.

The new ICB Series is available in standard and double distance sensing ranges. The nickel-brass housings are available in long and short barrel lengths. The three-wire sensors are available in your choice of 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 new ICB Series will be available in the popular M12 diameter size. In the coming months additional sizes will be added, including M8, M18, and M30 diameters. They carry cURus and CE approvals, giving assurance of high quality and safety. The sensors also come with Carlo Gavazzi’s, standard 10-year inductive proximity sensor warranty.
