Inductive proximity sensors from ifm electronic detect all metals at the same range

Longer ranges, improved performance all round and lower prices are just some of the hallmarks of the outstanding new range of inductive proximity sensor just launched by market leader ifm electronic.

The new ranges features standard M12, M18 and M30 housings with sensing ranges of 10mm, 15mm and 30mm respectively, regardless of the metal being detected. There simply is no reduction factor.  All versions, flush and non-flush are also available in two lengths.

Beyond that the environmental credentials of the new range are superb, with an operating temperature range between -40°C and +85°C and every ingress protection from IP65 to IP69K, not to mention that these units are immune to strong electrical fields, so some are suitably coated to resist weld spatter.

While sensors with the same correction factor for all metals have formed an integral part of the ifm electronic range for many years, the innovative features of the new range enhance performance at more attractive prices than ifm could offer before and the competition struggle to match.

ifm is committed to working closely with its customers to develop products which precisely match their needs, and the company provides expert, readily accessible technical support to help users maximise the benefits they gain from ifm products.
