High detection accuracy and repeated operation in a very small housing.

This series is available in M12 industrial standard nickel-plated brass housings with extended operating distance from 4 up to 8 mm; The LED is clearly visible from any direction and it is also used for short circuit and overload indication.

The new extra-short ICB12 allows the sensor to be installed in applications where the space is limited and long sensing distance detection is needed. The permanently legible part number and serial number, laser engraved on the plastic cap, guarantees the traceability of each sensor.

The new ICB extra-short mini-range, with its 25 mm total length for the flush version, provides a high level of technology in a compact design. Its built-in microcontroller guarantees repeated and highly accurate operation across a wide temperature range up to 80°C and it can be installed easily in applications with limited space. This series is specifically targeted at applications such as CNC machines or machine tools.

The ICB12 extra-short sensors represent the best choice for non-contact detection of metallic targets in applications where the space is limited. The longer operating distance, up to 8 mm for the non-flush version, keeps the sensor well protected and allows for an increased lifetime. The aim of this launch is to further strengthen our position in the market by providing reliable, high-performance inductive sensors.
