A single sensor with three applications

March 17th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


Ifm Electronic’s newly developed IFS240 series presents one sensor that can be used for three different applications: in factory automation, in applications with coolants and lubricants, or in mobile applications. Flexible, ifm-electronic-313-03easy and fast setup of the sensors is via the M12 connection or via a 2 m PUR cable. Increased sensing ranges guarantee reliable detection of the objects. Since only one sensor is required for different applications, stock keeping is reduced. A wide temperature range of -40 to 85 °C and protection ratings IP 65, IP 66, IP 67, IP 68 and IP 69K guarantee maximum reliability. This generation of inductive sensors meets the user’s increased machine uptime requirements while offering a reliable switching function that assures the avoidance of standstills. The IFS240 is a universal sensor for use in all areas of application.
