Magnetic position sensor for welding applications

Robust and impact resistant in compact design with non-stick coating to prevent sticking of weld slag

  • Non-stick coating to prevent sticking of weld slag
  • Object detection through a cover to protect the sensor
  • Reliable switching signal even in cases of heavy soiling of the sensor
  • Robust and impact resistant thanks to active face made of metal
  • Space-saving design for limited space

Made for demanding environments
The new compact power pack from ifm is predestined for the rough environments in welding applications. Its non-stick coating prevents the sticking of weld slag, which simply rolls off the robust metal housing. Even in cases of heavy soiling and impact the sensor functions reliably and always guarantees safe operation.

Non-contact sensing through covers
The sensor can detect objects through non-ferromagnetic covers, an additional protection. The low-cost cover can be exchanged easily without any technical staff.
