Carlo Gavazzi CA18CL series capacitive proximity sensors have a sensing distance of either 8mm for flush mounted units on metal or 12mm for non-flush mounted units. Carlo Gavazzi CA18CL series capacitive proximity sensors are available with either 4-wire DC or 2-wire AC output with both make (NO) and break (NC) switching. Housed in grey M18 polyester with a 2m PVC cable or M12 plug, Carlo Gavazzi CA18CL series capacitive proximity sensors are ideal for use in level and plastic machinery applications.

Here's how some of our customers use this product...

Measuring the Speed of Conveyor Belts

The Background: Our customer is an industrial facility that moves raw materials to the production area via a conveyor belt system.

The Problem: The facility is undergoing an efficiency review and they want to accurately measure the speed of all conveyors in use.

The Solution: We recommended Carlo Gavazzi CA18CL series capacitive proximity sensors. This unit paired with a rate panel meter and correct programming yielded a display with a FPM reading and output to another device for feedback control.
