Carlo Gavazzi continues to extend their product offering of IO Link communication by launching the IBS04 & ICS05 with integrated IO Link communication.
The IBS and ICS series are among the smallest inductive sensors with on-board IO-Link communication available in the market.
Each device is easily configured by setting the internal parameters via an IO-Link master. The IBS04 and ICS05 series represent the optimal solution for industrial automation equipment in applications where space is very limited and where non-contact detection of metal objects in general position-sensing and presence sensing is required such as tool selection, robotic position-sensing and control of micro-mechanisms.
The IBS and ICS family are available in a robust stainless steel housing, Ø4 smooth barrel or M5 male threaded barrel and have an operating distance of 0.8 to 1.3 mm, easy to install the active face can be installed flush and comes with a choice of 2 m PVC cable or M8-disconnect plug to allow for flexible mounting options and offers high speed detection with an operating frequency of up to 6kHz.
In addition to the standard functions of a sensor; the onboard IO-Link offers you un-paralleled functionality. After connecting the sensor to an IO-Link master it is possible to configure additional advanced functions such as: Programmable sensing distance and hysteresis, switch point (single, two point or window mode), timer functions, temperature alarms, divider function to read the speed of a sprocket (RPM counter). Setting configurable outputs such as PNP/NPN and NO/NC Push Pull. All these parameters can be changed on-the fly. The in-built micro controller ensures stability with respect to environmental influences with highly repeatable measurements between -25C and +70C.
Both the IBS04 and ICS05 Series of miniaturised proximity inductive sensors are the perfect solution for all factory and automation applications including plastic & rubber, precision positioning, materials handling, packing and wrapping applications, machine tools and are CE, UL, CSA, and IO-Link certified.
