Further products and accessories
Operating pressure up to 500 bar, bursting pressure up to 2000 bar
With 10 million pressure cycles the sensor lasts as long as the cylinder
Housing and sensing face of 1mm thick stainless steel
Equipping the cylinder with two ifm sensors costs no more than a comparable sensor in this application
Housing length of only 40mm for a low cylinder profile
M12 or M14 housing, cable or M12 connector, PNP or NPN, normally open, normally closed or complementary output
Reliable monitoring of the piston positions
The units are based on a magnetic-inductive technology which solely detects ferromagnetic metals (e.g. steel of the piston rod). Using this operating principle, the stainless steel housing can have a wall thickness up to 1mm, even at the sensing face, resulting in extremely long life and high reliability.
Connection technology ecolink
The innovative sealing concept provides the high protection ratings IP 67 / IP 68 / IP 69K
|Held in place:
The saw-tooth type vibration protection ensures that the nut does not become loose unintentionally in case of shock and vibration
Easy to install and remove manually
Versions in a transparent black housing for an optimum visibility of the LED even in bright lighting conditions
The connection technology meets the M12 standard EN 61076
Reliable even in mobile applications
Overpressure impossible: Due to the special installation of a mechanical end stop the O-ring is always correctly compressed and so permanently maintains its sealing function. The saw tooth contoured vibration protection secures against strong shocks and vibrations. The high protection rating IP 67 / IP 68 / IP 69K, the wide temperature range of -40...90 °C as well as high-quality housing materials (high-grade stainless steel, TPU) ensure a permanently reliable connection in harsh environments such as salty moisture, oil and grease.
Clearly visible: The innovative design and a transparent black housing ensure that, even in bright lighting conditions, the LEDs are more clearly visible than with clear transparent versions. This is an important prerequisite to keep an eye on the plant status all the time and to be able to act quickly in case of problems.
Antenna, evaluation and CANopen interface in a compact M18 or M30 housing
Extended temperature range of -40...85°C
E1 type approval by the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (German Federal Motor Transport Authority)
Optimised for outdoor use with IP67 and IP69K, shock resistant to EN60068-2-27, vibration resistant to EN60068-2-64
CANopen protocol, optimised for use with ifm ecomatmobile controllers
Reliable solution for identification tasks
The robust RFID compact unit with CANopen interface has been developed for identification tasks in agricultural machines, municipal vehicles and construction machines. It automatically detects different attachments and configures the corresponding settings in the controller. Automatic identification simplifies the creation of user-specific system set-ups. Information on maintenance intervals and operating times can automatically be generated and stored since the controller automatically detects when and how long a specific machine set-up runs. Downtime is kept to a minimum, productivity is increased.
