Supplied in IP69K polycarbonate housing resistant to oil, impact, and scratching, 24 Vdc units are available with 2 m PUR cable or 0.3 m PUR cable with M8 connector.
Magnetic Inductive Proximity Sensors offer ranges to 70 mm.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
May 16, 2012 Suited for industrial automation and food/beverage industries, Part No. MFT202 (M12 dia) and MGT203 (M18 dia) use giant magnetoresistive (GMR) technology for non-contact indication in position and speed applications. Features include 316 stainless steel sensing face, all-metal housing, and zero-leak, IP69K-rated design. Sensor detects magnet through materials such as stainless steel, non-ferrous metal, aluminum, plastic, and wood. These 24 Vdc units have PNP, NO switching output.
Mechatronic Flow Switch offer fast response, long life.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Mar 29, 2012 Used to monitor liquid in flow control applications, SBN Series is immune to rapid temperature changes of media, has 10 msec response time, and is rated for 10 million switching cycles. Integrated check valve prevents back flow, and accuracy rate is ±5% of full range. Respectively, SBN333 and SBN346 have setting ranges of 0.26-6.6 gpm and 1.32-26.4 gpm with ¾ and 1 in. NPT process connections. Both 24 Vdc units have PNP switching output, pressure rating of 363 psig, and M12 connector.
Pixel Counting Sensor enhances inspection, error-proofing.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Mar 28, 2012 Suited for use throughout manufacturing process, Series O2V efector dualis Pixel Counter sensor analyzes area of object by counting pixels and can identify objects that vary in shape, size, or shade. Product comes in die-cast metal housing and integrates image sensor, evaluation electronics, and lighting. Along with pushbutton setup, this compact CMOS vision sensor offers 4-digit numeric display to indicate sensor output and carries 100 mA max load current per switching output.
Sanitary Point-Level Sensor is reliable through foam, residue build-up.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Mar 24, 2011 Compatible with liquids, viscous media, and powders, LMT Series can provide level indication in storage tanks and protects pumps from run-dry conditions. Capacitive technology lets sensor detect measuring points - field damping, conductivity, and permittivity - at frequencies from 50-200 MHz. Elements of construction include PEEK sensing face with food-grade surface finish, 316 stainless steel body, and IP68/IP69K sealing.
Liquid Level Sensor has solid-state design.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Aug 23, 2010 Able to detect variety of liquids, LR Series is available with measuring probe lengths up to 63 in. and uses echo time-of-flight measuring principle with guided wave radar technology. Modular system consists of stainless steel sensor housing with numeric display and pushbutton setup, cut-to-length stainless steel measuring probe, and M12 cordset for power and outputs. Parameters, such as liquid type, setpoint, and resetpoint, are established using menu-driven display.
Color Sensor targets industrial automation applications.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Jul 20, 2010 With switching frequency of 2,000 Hz, Model O5C500 can verify, sort, and error-proof presence of objects by color in high-speed applications. Transmitter emits pulses of red, green, and blue light, while receiver evaluates pulsed light reflected from target to determine best color for identification. Auto-detect output automatically sets single switching output to PNP or NPN operation. With light spot diameter of 2 x 6 mm, Micro DC unit offers adjustable sensing range of 15-19 mm.
RTD Temperature Transmitter offers direct or remote mounting.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Jun 24, 2010 Featuring quick-disconnect M12 connection, Model TP3237 turns any Pt100 or Pt1000 RTD probe into programmable transmitter. Once connected, transmitter verifies type of RTD and automatically makes correct settings for application. Transmitter can be programmed for scaling between -58 to 572°F and has IP69K environmental rating that prevents liquid ingress. With 4-20 mA analog output and 20-32 Vdc operating voltage, Micro DC unit is suited for industrial automation and sanitary applications.
Ring and Tube Inductive Sensors detect small metal objects.ifm efector, Inc. Exton, PA 19341
Apr 28, 2010 Ring sensors are Micro DC units with PNP or NPN outputs, NO/NC, and are available in diameters from 10.1-15.1 mm, while tube sensors offer NO outputs. Inductive proximity sensors detect small metal objects, such as rivets, screws, springs, and bolts, used in material flow applications such as feeder processes and parts counting. Steel balls with diameters down to 0.6 mm can be detected. Each model is available in static or dynamic output versions.
