At Automation24 you will find a large number of inductive sensors from ifm. Simply select the suitable sensor series for your application and look forward to the attractive price-performance ratio:

Inductive sensors from ifm for standard applications such as position sensing of metal pipes

Inductive sensors from ifm in the standard version for position sensing of metal pipes

Inductive sensors from ifm for standard applications

In the online shop of Automation24 you can get inductive sensors from ifm, that thanks to the wide temperature range of -40-85 °C, the high protection rating of IP65 to IP69K and the increased sensing range can be used for many standard applications .

The high durability, to which the vibration and shock resistance of the inductive sensors contribute, is also outstanding. They are insensitive to mechanically increasing tolerances and therefore long-lasting.

The universally applicable sensors are suitable for industrial applications without any special requirements. Depending on the installation situation, different installation lengths are available.

To the sensors

Kplus sensors from ifm – Correction factor 1 on all metals

If it is important that your inductive sensors have the same sensing range for all metals , the inductive Kplus sensors from ifm will be the right choice for you! For all material types, the correction factor remains at K=1.

The compact series can be installed to save space and convinces with its innovative and patented coil design. . Furthermore, the sensors have high temperature ranges of -40-85 ° C for universal use. With the high impermeability due to the protection rating of IP68/IP69K, the inductive sensors from ifm are equipped for continuous contact with coolants and oils.

Thanks to their special properties, the Kplus series inductive sensors from ifm are, for example, excellently qualified for use in factory automation and the automotive industry.

ifm inductive sensors: All-metal sensors for harsh applications

ifm all-metal sensors defy the most diverse media such as aggressive cleaning agents

Robust ifm all-metal sensors for harsh applications

If you require reliable inductive sensors for demanding industrial environments, then you should choose an all-metal sensor from ifm.

The shock and vibration-resistant sensors always detect end positions safely and can withstand temperatures of up to 100 °C. Furthermore, the inductive sensors from ifm have a robust and impact-resistant housing made entirely of stainless steel, which can withstand up to 1 joule on the active surface. With the high protection rating up to IP69K they can withstand various media such as coolants, lubricants and aggressive cleaning agents. For even greater sealing protection, the sensors should be used with the appropriate ecoLink connectors from the field of connection technology.

The threaded sensors are available in a short, compact design. Thus, you will find the right solution for confined and spatial conditions!

Due to their durability, the all-metal sensors are particularly suitable for the food industry, machine tool and plant construction, machining technology as well as for use in mobile machines.

To the products

Inductive sensors from ifm in special sizes

Special industrial applications require special designs. ifm meets these requirements with its inductive sensors in miniature as well as large and round designs which can be flexibly connected via plug-in connection, connection terminals or connecting cable.

The following applies: the sensing range increases with the size of the design. Thus, the large designs with larger sensing ranges are suitable for the reliable detection of, for example, hot metals in the steel industry. The cylindrical miniature designs, on the other hand, are used in applications where very precise object detection is important and the mechanical tolerances are more stringent.
