Carlo Gavazzi offers a comprehensive range of magnetic sensors for use in proximity detection applications. As their name suggests, they used in conjunction with an external magnet - when the sensor approaches the magnet, the output from the sensor will change state.
Typically magnetic sensors will have a longer sensing distance than typical proximity sensors. As well, the output will be a mechanical contact.
There are a wide variety of styles available including rectangular, cylindrical, and slotted. As well, special coded magnets and sensors are available for use in safety applications.
Magnetic sensors are frequently used on elevators and lifts, gate control, level detection, and access control.
Carlo Gavazzi offers a large range of photoelectric sensors which are used extensively on packaging machinery, automatic door systems, factory automation, and in car washes. Our sensors are available in diffuse reflective, background suppression, reto-reflective, polarized, through beam, clear object detection, and color recognition.
Carlo Gavazzi is a leader in photoelectric sensors for automatic doors and have one of the broadest range of UL325 sensors on the market.
We also offer a range of fiber-optic type sensors for applications where a conventional sensor cannot be used (space restrictions, temperature, atmosphere).
Also included in our range of photoelectric sensors are our VP series optical types. These are ideal for use in level applications. They are available in various housing materials which allow their use in various industrial cleaning solutions.
Carlo Gavazzi offers a complete range of quick disconnect cables for use with inductive, capacitive, photoelectric, and ultrasonic sensors.
Our cables are available with 3, 4, or 5 wires and with either a straight or angled connector. The cables feature a PVC sheath and are available in 2, 5, or 10 meter lengths. Furtherore, we can also supply cables with a PUR cable sheath. For other lengths, we can also consider special, non-standard lengths (contact your Carlo Gavazzi Rep for more information). We can also supply cables rated IP69K with EcoLab approval for use in demanding applications with our IP69K rated inductive, capacitive and photoelectric sensors.M12 (micro) connector for use with DC sensors and with an M12 connector for use with AC sensors.
Our quick disconnect cables are available with either an M8 (nano) or M12 (micro) connector for use with DC sensors and with an M12 connector for use with AC sensors.
Carlo Gavazzi's patented Tripleshield™ Capacitive Sensors have become the standard all other manufacturers are measured against. All Tripleshield™ sensors are tested to withstand electrostatic discharges up to 40 KV, line transients up to 4 KV, and airborne noise (ie. cellular phones) up to 15 V/m. Furthermore, some models have built-in dust and humidity compensation.
Capacitive sensors will detect most materials - conductive and non-conductive. This makes them ideal for level detection in raw plastic delivery systems and in agricultural applications. Our sensors are available in 12 mm, 18 mm, and 30 mm diameter with both AC and DC outputs. We offer both plastic and metal housings with either a built-in cable or a connector. As well we also offer sensors with an IP69K rating and ECOLAB approval.
Our capacitive sensors have adjustable sensitivity making them ideal for your level sensing applications. Furthermore, many models feature our Touch Mode programming for setting sensitivity levels and output status.
Carlo Gavazzi offers a comprehensive range of inductive sensors - primarily used to detect metal parts and objects. Our extensive offering includes inductive sensors with cylindrical housings (from 4mm to 30 mm) with both standard, extended, and triple sensing distance. Typically inductive sensors are used in packaging and plastics machines, assembly lines and conveyor systems.
Our inductive sensors and proximity switches are available in a wide variety of styles and feature both AC and DC outputs. They are available with a short or long housing and with either a built-in cable or quick disconnect plug. We also provide a wide selection of ancillary products such as timers, zero speed relays, counters, and digital speed indicators and tachometers.
Carlo Gavzzi also offers inductive sensors with IO-Link. IO-Link is a point to point communication protocol that allows for remote configuration and communication - allowing access to advanced diagnostic information.
Carlo Gavazzi comprehensive range of level detection products is well suited to solve most level control applications. Our range is able to detect conductive and non-conductive liquids, granulates, grains, and plastics.
We offer level sensors and level control relays for both on/off control and continuous monitoring of levels. We offer conductive probes and amplifiers, capacitive level sensors, ultrasonic sensors, magnetic level probes, and optical sensors.
Typical applications are for level control in wells and municipal water systems, protection of pumps, levels in grain elevators and feed conveyors, and level detection in vacuum delivery systems in the plastics industry.
