ifm Sensor Full-Metal Housing Provides High Tolerances

Latest News

The magnetic sensors from ifm efector offer ingress resistance in all media. A full-metal housing makes these units suitable for long-life applications in hygienic areas and the food industry, as well as applications on telescopes, swivel arms or industrial trucks.

Drilling in stainless steel or adjustment for flush installation is not required. Due to the tolerant response behaviour, reliable switch-point detection is ensured even with high mechanical tolerances.

The sensors are also used for cleaning pipes to detect pigs through pipe walls. They offer long sensing ranges even through non-magnetisable metals, plastic or glass. The switch point is very temperature stable and reproducible.

The food-grade full-metal housing offers IP 69K up to 100 °C. Due to the additional impact, shock and vibration resistance this model is suited for a variety of demanding applications.
