Carlo Gavazzi (Buffalo Grove, IL) announces the launch of the new ICF Full-Metal Inductive Sensors. This new sensor family offers increased uptime due to their durable stainless steel housing and intelligent monitoring capabilities. Applications in harsh environments such as agriculture, food & beverage, and machining will benefit from the ICF Full-Metal Inductive Sensors.
Carlo Gavazzi is including IO-Link in every ICF inductive sensor for easy ordering, application flexibility and reduced inventory. An IO-Link master or configurator (such as Carlo Gavazzi’s SCTL55 Handheld IO-Link Smart Configurator) is required to change sensor settings during initial installation. However, the sensors can be used as standard transistor output sensors without an IO-Link operating environment. Therefore, the ICF Full-Metal Inductive Sensors meet customer’s needs wherever they are on their IIoT journey and equips them for future automation advances.
Carlo Gavazzi is introducing new intelligent monitoring capabilities through IO-Link in this family of ICF Series sensors. Cyclic process data can monitor the quality of detection which allows predictive maintenance to be scheduled before downtime occurs. Additionally, alarms can be customized to signal if a target position is trending closer or further away from the sensing face or high / low internal sensor temperature.
Features and benefits of the ICF Full-Metal Inductive Sensors include a long lifetime, increased uptime due to intelligent monitoring and endless configurations. The new ICF Full-Metal Inductive Sensors were specifically designed to withstand extreme operating conditions such as exposure to a wide range of temperature variations, frequent high pressure, and high-temperature washdown cycles.
