October 28, 2021 – Buffalo Grove, IL - Carlo Gavazzi is excited to introduce the new ICS Series E1-Rated Inductive Proximity Sensors. Specifically designed for the challenging applications on mobile equipment, these sensors offer unrivaled performance focusing on reliable detection and reduced downtime.

E1-approved inductive sensors assure accurate and reliable detection of actuating parts such as hydraulic pistons, gear speed, crane position and movement on refuse vehicles, mobile cranes, concrete mixers, tractors, fire trucks, harvesting equipment, buses, forklifts, and more. These mobile platforms are typically exposed to high levels of shock and vibration from the terrain, exposure to salt and debris from the road and vehicle engine refuse gases, extreme voltage peaks if a battery is disconnected from the alternator, wide operating temperature ranges due to the environment and proximity to engines and exhaust systems, and electromagnetic interferences generated by radio transmitters.

Despite these harsh operating environments, the most critical benefits to mobile equipment manufacturers are reliable detection and reduced downtime. To achieve these high standards, Carlo Gavazzi has designed and manufactured the ICS Series E1-Rated Inductive Proximity Sensors with special attention to mechanical durability, electrical protection, and EMC performance.
