Fibre optic systems
- Different designs and sensing heads for a large variety of applications
- For installation in places where access is difficult
- For installation in places where access is difficult
- For the reliable detection of tiny objects
- Resistant to various aggressive chemicals

Fibre optic systems are used where mounting space for photoelectric standard sensors is restricted. The evaluation unit and the fibre optics are mounted separately.
These systems can therefore be installed in places where access is difficult.

In addition to more than 100 types of acrylic and glass fibre optics with different sensing heads, ifm offers a large variety of components for the installation and operation of fibre optic systems. The range covers mounting clamps, special fixtures, coupling systems, cutters, diaphragms and lens attachments.

Fibre optic systems
- Simple connection of the fibre optics to an amplifier
- Setting process saves time and cost during set-up
- LED display to check operation, switching status and function
- Acrylic or glass fibres for different applications
- Quick and easy mounting

Fibre optic systems are used where mounting space for photoelectric standard sensors is restricted. The evaluation unit and the fibre optics are mounted separately.
These systems can therefore be installed in places where access is difficult.

Fibre optic systems are designed as through-beam or diffuse reflection sensors.

Acrylic fibre optic sensors are suited for standard applications if no particular demands such as heat or chemical resistance are made. They can be cut to length and are less expensive than glass fibre optic sensors.

Fibre optics made of silicate glass are more resistant to heat, ageing and chemicals than acrylic fibre optics. They do not change their optical response when they are bent. Glass fibre optic sensors cannot be cut to length by the user.

High-flex fibre optics allow extremely small bending radii.
