Eco-friendly proximity sensing

ICB inductive proximity sensors from Carlo Gavazzi are eco-friendly and tough. Their high-performance potting material is made from a recycled corn by-product that withstands higher resistance to mechanical stress.


ICB inductive proximity sensors from Carlo Gavazzi are eco-friendly and tough.

The automation company based in Mississauga, Ont. says the sensor’s high-performance potting material is made from a recycled corn by-product that withstands higher resistance to mechanical stress.

An air-core sensing coil replaces traditional ferrites and coils so the ICB has greater immunity to magnetic fields and withstands higher vibration levels and impacts.

It’s available in standard and double distance sensing ranges with nickel-brass housings in long and short barrel lengths.
Three-wire sensors are available in opened or closed NPN or PNP outputs. Connection options include a 2-m PVC cable or a M12 disconnect plug.
