The Carlo Gavazzi CA18CAN/CAF proximity switch features an improved 4th-generation TRIPLESHIELD technology with increased immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI), especially to frequency drives, and increased immunity to humidity and dust. The implementation of stability indication eases the setup procedure, as both Stable ON and Stable OFF positions are indicated by the green and yellow LEDs. The sensing distance is increased by 25%, allowing room for additional stable detection.

The dust alarm function provides an early warning that the sensing surroundings must be cleaned. The temperature alarm function raises an alarm if the sensing surface goes above 140°F (60°C). The sensor housing features IP69K protection as well as approval by ECOLAB for cleaning and disinfection agents.
