Inductive Sensors measure distances up to 2 mm.

Press Release Summary:




Measuring 4.7 x 8 x 16 mm, IWFM 08 Series of Inductive Sensors offer resolutions of less than 0.001 mm at sensing distances up to 2 mm. They feature 0-10 V output, allowing them to be directly connected to analog outputs of control system. Units mount in restricted spaces, are IP67-rated, and have die-cast zinc/nickel-plated housings that prevent damage during installation and operation. Various factory automation and assembly/handling applications are supported.



Original Press Release:



Compact, Highly Accurate Inductive Sensors Measure Distances to 2 mm



High Resolution Sensors are Easy to Mount in Restricted Spaces

Southington, Conn. - For limited space distance measurement and positioning applications involving metal targets, Baumer introduces the IWFM 08 Series of Inductive Sensors. Measuring just 4.7 x 8 x 16 mm, these easy-to-mount sensors offer powerful resolutions of <0.001 mm at sensing distances up to 2 mm. These sensors offer high linearity and repeat accuracy, and are ideal for a variety of highly precise industrial applications.

IWFM 08 Series sensors feature an integrated 0... 10 V output, which allows them to be directly connected to the analog outputs of a control system and eliminates the need for measuring boards or processing units. These IP67-rated sensors are contained in robust, die-cast zinc/nickel-plated housings that prevent damage during installation and operation.

IWFM 08 Series Inductive Sensors are designed for use in a wide variety of factory automation and assembly/handling applications including automotive production, electronic manufacturing, injection molding, laboratory automation, medical equipment, metalworking, packaging, printing/graphics, solar cell/PV manufacturing, textile production, and wood/lumber processing.

These sensors are proven in highly precise end use applications such as controlling robotic grippers, cranes/lifts, medical scanning equipment, and industrial drilling machines.
