Pressure sensors for pneumatic applications

The compact PQ Series pressure sensors from Ifm Electronic are designed for pneumatic applications such as robotics and material handling applications. They measure the full range of pressure and vacuum typical in these applications. The cube-shaped pneumatic pressure sensor easily retrofits traditional pressure switches at a fraction of the price. Measuring only 32 mm x […]

Touch-sensitive sensors for automotive applications

Ifm Electronic’s new capacitive touch sensors are designed for installation on walls in the automotive industry, and with their non-contact switching, no pressure is necessary. The sensors provide wear and tear-free operation and optical feedback is via LEDs in case of switching. The sensors are oil, impact and scratch resistant and they have an IP […]

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, […]
