ifm cuts the cost of precision distance measurement


With the new P|Prox range of inductive distance sensors from ifm electronic, reliably measuring the distance to metallic targets with micrometre precision no longer requires expensive measuring systems. P|Prox sensors are easy to install and set up, and thanks to their IO-Link communication, they are easy to interface with almost any type of control system.

P|Prox sensors are factory-calibrated and ready to use out of the box. They can be relied on to deliver accurate, repeatable results, continuously outputting distance-to-target data via IO-Link, which is unaffected by the type of target metal. When the highest precision is required, simple one-point calibration or even more accurate three-point calibration is possible.

P|Prox sensors have an IP69K rating and an operating temperature range of -25 to +70ºC. They are available in flush and non-flush mounting versions with 60mm long industry standard M12, M18 and M30 threaded stainless-steel housings. All types are resistant to the effects of external magnetic fields, and all incorporate four LEDs for local status indication.
