M12, M18 & M30 Inductive Proximity Sensors with an Eco Friendly Design

Carlo Gavazzi is excited to expand upon the next generation of our state of the art ICB Series inductive proximity sensors. In addition to the recently launched M12 housing, we now offer industry standard M18 and M30 housings. The ICB Series continues to raise the bar for inductive technology.

An all-new microprocessor provides greater reliability and repeatability, along with higher switching frequencies than possible with previous models. It also provides the opportunity for greater customization options, such as programmable outputs and programmable switching frequencies.

In addition, the ICB12 and ICB18 have two further innovations. The first is an air-core sensing coil, which replaces the traditional ferrite coil and allows higher immunity to magnetic fields, and a higher resistance to vibration and impact. The second is an eco-friendly potting material, which provides higher resistance to mechanical stress, thus increasing the reliability and stability of the sensor. These result in the ICB Series being an inherently more rugged and robust solution, with a longer lifetime than previous generations!

Key options available in the ICB Series include:
  •     Standard and extended (2x) sensing ranges
  •     Flush and non-flush options
  •     Short and long housings
  •     Nickel-plated brass housings
  •     Pre-wired PVC cable (2m) and quick connect plug (M12) connection options
  •     NPN, PNP, normally open and normally closed output options
  •     Highly visible LED indication(s) for output status
We are also proud to announce some enhancements to our ICB12 models. Operating frequency has been increased from 1.5 kHz to 2.0 kHz, allowing use with high speed applications. And the LED visibility has been improved, so that they are visible clearly from the back of the sensor in addition to the sides.

The ICB Series is cURus and CE approved, and is covered by our standard 10 year warranty on inductive proximity sensors. They are available from our vast network of North American sales offices and authorized distributors.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
