ifm electronic, or ifm for short, is a global manufacturer of various products used in automation technology. The company was founded in Essen in 1969 and is still family-owned today, now in its second generation. ifm automation technology convinces international users from different industries. Thanks to many years of expertise, especially in the field of sensors, ifm electronic is a valued and worldwide leading manufacturer. Discover out how it all started here.
The products from ifm electronic are required, for example, to measure temperatures, record positions and control the consumption of certain materials.
At Automation24 you can, for example, purchase position sensors from ifm at best prices from the category Sensor systems. These work purely electronically and are therefore wear-free. They are also characterized by high switching frequencies and their simple operation.
Inductive sensors as well as capacitive sensors are suitable for the detection of close objects.
With the ifm photoelectric sensors you can detect objects from longer distances. The cylinder sensors with their special design are suitable for special applications. For very long distances due to non-magnetizable materials, the use of magnetic sensors is recommended.
You will also receive process sensors from ifm electronic for reliable fluid measurement and monitoring. Due to the direct contact with the medium, the sensors meet high requirements. They are pressure, vibration and shock resistant and have a high protection rating, as well as media and temperature resistance.
In the portfolio you will find flow sensors and temperature sensors together with suitable evaluation units. You also have the choice between ifm flow sensors, pressure sensors, temperature sensors, resistance thermometers, level sensors and point level sensors.
You will also find what you are looking for in the category motion sensors . With ifm speed sensors and incremental encoders as well as vibration sensors, you can reliably monitor the smooth functionality of your drives and avoid premature machine failures.
In order for your sensors to meet future challenges, Automation24 offers, for example, additional IO-Link solutions from ifm in the category control systems. Use the fieldbus-independent interface and extract all data from your systems and machines for further processing.
Different sensor designs require different connection technology. For your sensors, you can get high-quality M12 sensor cables, M12 connecting cables as well as circular connectors for a wide range of applications from the online shop.
Automation24 provides you with a variety of automation technology products from ifm electronic. Select the right sensors that will help your application achieve even more efficiency and precise control.
Quick tip: On request we offer you our parameterisation service for ifm incremental encoders as well as a parameterisation service for ifm temperature transmitters.
