- For a precise position monitoring on machines
- Reliable transmission of the distance as linearised process value via IO-Link
- Flexible use thanks to large operating temperature range
- Very high repeatability
- Normally closed / normally open and PNP/NPN adjustable via IO-Link
Inductive sensors – With IO-Link
Inductive sensors with IO-Link 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 configured in numerous ways, the sensor can be set as normally closed or normally open and its polarity as PNP or NPN. This allows reduction of the multitude of types, reducing the cost of stock.
Thanks to the high precision, even the smallest changes in distance can be detected. A warning may be given when the target leaves the set detection zone or comes too close to the sensing face. Possible use cases include e.g. monitoring the true run of a spindle or the tension of a saw blade. With this generation of inductive sensors, one single sensor can be used for three different applications. Whether in factory automation, in applications with coolants and lubricants or in mobile applications – the new ifm technology platform distinguishes itself with universal and permanent usability while guaranteeing high performance, temperature stability and longer sensing ranges.
A large temperature range of -40...85 °C and protection ratings IP 65, IP 66, IP 67, IP 68 and IP 69K guarantee maximum reliability. All data acquired can be transmitted and recorded via IO-Link.
