What if you could prevent your process valve from failing?

ifm’s innovative MVQ Smart Valve Sensor provides preventive maintenance diagnostics while continuously monitoring the position of quarter-turn valves. 

The sensor features built-in functions that can identify different wear conditions via IO-Link, ifm’s digital communication interface. The sensor can indicate a change in the valve’s operation, which can be a warning that deposits are interfering with the valve’s ability to close or that the seal is wearing.

  • MVQ Smart Valve Sensor provides continuous valve position feedback and predictive information alerting to early signals of industrial valve failures.
  • Valve open / valve closed indication is visible from a distance
  • Easy set up via teach button or IO-Link, ifm’s digital communication interface
  • Diagnostic functions via IO-Link allows the sensor to identify different wear conditions.
