The CA18CA and CA30CA series capacitive proximity sensors are well-suited for automation applications in which sensor flexibility or sensing performance needs to be monitored and logged constantly and accurately. The sensors are housed in Ecolab-approved IP69K-certified housings. An IO-Link communication mode enables functionalities such as quality of run (QoR), quality of teach (QoT) and diagnostic parameters. With IO-Link sensor communications, each sensor becomes fully programmable and customizable, allowing more than half a million setting combinations. Other features include programmable sensing distance and hysteresis; single point, two point and window sensing modes; configurable input/output; and standard, plastic or level application modes.
