Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

ifm Solves the Challenge of Wiring Cylinder Sensors in Close Proximity by Integrating Two Sensor Elements into a Single Connector.

ifm’s MK Series T-slot and C-slot Dual Cylinder Sensors reduce wiring by and hardware by using one connector, drastically lowering total installation and material costs. The dual cylinder sensors provide two sensor elements integrated into standard 4-pin wiring blocks (a single 4-pin M8 connector or a 4-pin M12 connector). In addition, ifm’s mechanically robust housings ensure a highly...

The Next Wave of Intelligent Design Automation

In the amount of time it takes to set up a meeting to discuss just one design, engineers can now explore designs exponentially. Generative design has catalyzed a paradigm shift in product development. This shift not only drastically decreases the time it takes to design a product. It also opens the door to design options that might never have been imagined by engineers on their own.
