Inductive Proximity Sensors Keep An Eye On The Food Industry

The IMF inductive proximity sensor promises to deliver reliable detection that complies with the demands of the food industry. The sensor’s V4A stainless steel housing and LCP plastic sensing face are FDA-approved, and the sensor is certified by Ecolab.  The IMF is resistant to industrial cleaning agents and extremely watertight, with enclosure ratings of IP 68 and IP 69K.  These features allow a longer service life even when subjected to frequent cleaning cycles, which reduces machine downtime. Sensing range is from 2 mm to 20 mm. Optional communication via IO-Link creates flexibility and adds more functions for automation applications. For more specs, visit
