ifm offers a complete component system of easy-to-use mounting sets that make the installation of vision sensors and backlights easier for you. The solutions consist of a clamp fastened by only one screw that keeps the sensors safely in position and guarantees free movement in all axes.
Whereas the sensor mounting elements used depend on the sensor type, the clamps can be mounted in three different ways: rod mounting, free-standing mounting and fitting onto aluminium profiles which are common in industry.
For rod mounting of vision sensors, a clamp is simply fixed on an existing rod on the machine. The clamp on the rod and the mounting element of the sensor can be rotated. So any sensor position can be reached simply and quickly. Clamps are available for three rod diameters: 10/12/14 mm.
