New ifm sensors for intelligent position monitoring

Besides the precise position monitoring the new inductive sensors from ifm electronic transmit the distance as a linearised process value. Featuring very high repeatability and a wide temperature range of -40...85 °C the new devices are suitable for almost limitless applications. . NC/NO and PNP/NPN can be set via IO-Link.

Much more than just a pulse pick-up.

ifm's new inductive sensors with IO-Link incorporate several functions in one unit. They can be used as switching sensors with adjustable switch point or measuring systems with a measured value transmitted via IO-Link. The output signal can be set to NC or NO as well as PNP or NPN. This allows reduction of the multitude of types, reducing the cost of stock.

Highest precision

The new sensors are so precise that they detect even minute changes. Even brake shoe wear, spindle monitoring for deformation or tension of a saw blade are reliably detected. If the target leaves the detection zone or comes too close to the sensing face, a warning may be given. All data acquired can be transmitted and recorded via IO-Link.
