CARLO Gavazzi's ongoing commitment to its range of automation products has realised the growth in its proximity sensor range.

Available from NHP Electrical Engineering Products , Carlo Gavazzi proximity sensors are rugged and flexible and are designed for reliable and accurate sensing in almost any application.

Carlo Gavazzi’s range of inductive, capacitive, photo-electric and ultrasonic proximity sensors offer detection without any physical contact and this in turn provides longevity for the devices.

In the field of factory automation, the most commonly used proximity sensor is the inductive type, generating an electro-magnetic field to sense all types of metallic objects passing close to its sensing face.

This type of sensing technology is frequently used in applications which require metal objects to be detected within 10-30mm of the sensing face.

The other most widely used proximity sensor is the capacitive. This sensor uses an electro-static field to detect the presence of any object so it is often utilised to detect metallic and non-metallic objects in just about every industry.

The diverse range of Carlo Gavazzi proximity sensors covers broad spectrum of customer needs - from light duty to harsh applications. Typical applications range from automotive to car washing equipment to food processing and more.
