Capacitive sensor series has better immunity to dust, humidity, EMI
Carlo Gavazzi's 4th Generation Tripleshield CA18CA capacitive proximity sensors feature improved immunity to dust, humidity, and EMI and also features an optional dust alarm output that gives an early warning of accumulation on the face of the sensor.
Carlo Gavazzi’s 4th Generation Tripleshield CA18CA capacitive proximity sensors feature improved immunity to dust, humidity, and electromagnetic interference (EMI). The CA18CA series also includes diagnostic alarms and two LEDs for better reliability and simplified troubleshooting during installation. In addition to improved compensation for dust and humidity, an optional dust alarm output gives an early warning of accumulation on the face of the sensor. The CA18CA series is designed for harsh environments and has providing IP67 and IP69K protection. It also has ECOLAB approval for chemical resistance and the sensing face can withstand up to 120 C. An optional temperature alarm output warns the user if the sensing face surface exceeds 60 C. The CA18CA series is available in a vast range of configurations and are useful in many applications and industries including plastics, agriculture, pellet burning stoves, packaging, material handling, and food and beverage.
