ifm launches miniature inductive sensors with long range

-Inductive proximity sensors in the new IES2xx range from ifm electronic feature M8 threaded bodies that are just 30 mm long, yet they have a sensing range of up to 6 mm for non-flush-mounting versions and 3 mm for flush-mounting types. These features, combined with robust construction and ingress protection ratings up to IP69K, make them ideal for a wide range of applications where space is restricted or where a sensing solution with very low mass is needed.

Their stainless-steel bodies, which are extremely resistant to corrosion, and their wide operating temperature range of -40 to +85 ºC mean that the new sensors are equally suitable for use in the food sector and in general industrial applications such as machine tools and robotic systems.

To ensure an accurate match with the widest possible range of user requirements, IES2xx sensors are available in two- and three-wire flush and non-flush-mounting versions configured for either normally open or normally closed operation. All types incorporate four status indication LEDs placed at 90º intervals around their circumference, which ensures that the switching state of the sensor can be seen at a glance, irrespective of the sensor orientation.

All sensors in the IES2xx range use standard M8 connectors and ifm electronic offers a variety of connecting cables in lengths of up to 50m. Other accessories include mounting clips, mounting clamps, stainless-steel angle brackets and fixing nuts.
