Photoelectric sensor for conveying

The photoelectric OI Cube sensor from Ifm Electronic is distinguished by long ranges up to 800 mm for diffuse types and up to 15 m for retro-reflective types. For diffuse type sensors, the range can be set precisely using the multi-turn potentiometer. The range operates independent of colour even under harsh industrial conditions. The sensor […]

Mechatronic flow sensor for high temperatures

Ifm Electronic’s new SBT mechatronic flow sensor reportedly provides precise and quick measurement of media in high-temperature applications of up to 180°C. The sensor can be used for flow ranges from 0,3 – 25 l/min at pressure ranges of up to 15 bar. The SBT series operates on the spring-supported piston principle: the piston, located […]

Pixel counter sensor for inspection and error-proofing applications

ifm electronic’s O2V efector dualis pixel counter sensor is suited for use throughout the manufacturing process by solving a variety of inspection and error-proofing applications. It analyses the area of the object by counting pixels, identifying objects that vary in shape, size, or shade. The die-cast metal housing integrates the image sensor, evaluation electronics and […]

Easy and intelligent vibration monitoring

The new, easy-to-use vibration sensor from ifm electronic exactly monitors, displays and records vibration values. A display with colour change in traffic light colours shows machine conditions at a glance. The newly developed VNB001 is the first member of a new series of vibration sensors. The compact sensor monitors online the overall vibration condition of […]

Pressure sensor with io-link communication interface

IO-Link is a simple, point-to-point, communication protocol between an IO-Link-enabled device, typically a sensor or actuator, and an IO-Link master. This technology has now been implemented in ifm electronic’s PN7 series pressure sensors. If the IO-Link functionality is not used, then the sensor operates as a pressure switch with two switching outputs. Values above or […]

New infrared temperature sensor with integrated display

Temperatures up to 1350°C can be easily measured with the new TW7 infrared temperature sensor from ifm electronic. It is also the first unit to be equipped with an integrated display and operating unit. Easy pushbutton programming ensures quick use. In addition, the sensor features scratch-resistant precision lenses for minimum sensitivity to scattered light. Infrared […]

Compact flow meter for accurate measurement of liquids

The compact efector mid flow meter from ifm electronic monitors volumetric flow quantities, total quantities and temperatures. The sensor’s measuring and evaluation units are combined in a compact housing. Versatile in use, the sensor is suited to different flow directions up to 600 L/min and liquids with conductivity from 20 µS/cm such as water, coolants, […]

Inductive sensors for mining

Inductive sensors are vital in all automated and mining processes to provide the PLC with information, supplying the necessary signals on positions, limit or serve as pulse pick-ups for counting tasks or for monitoring rotational speed. Compared to mechanical switches, inductive sensors offer ideal conditions such as non-contact operation free from any wear and tear; high switching frequencies […]

Hygienic point level sensor that ignores foam and deposits

ifm electronic’s new LMT121 hygienic point level sensor safely monitors the level in storage tanks or protects pumps against running dry.  It can be adjusted to virtually any liquid and viscous medium, as well as to bulk materials. Thanks to the adjustment via IO-Link, it can even identify different media by two independently adjustable switch […]
