Maximum design freedom for reliable object detection: With new IF250, Baumer presents an extremely flat inductive sensor with yet large sensing distance. Despite the very flat design of only 6 mm, IF250 will detect objects at a distance of up to 12 mm. Such performance is unrivalled in this housing class and opens up new application fields where standard cylindrical sensors will not fit because of limited installation space.

By virtue of their reliability and cost-effectiveness, inductive proximity sensors are deployed when it comes to detection of metallic objects within a few millimeters:
Presence detection on machinery components
High-precision referencing of the zero position of moving machine components (e.g. in robotics)
Detection of different positions (e.g. limit switches)
Counting metallic objects (e.g. in a component feeder or conveyor system)
Presence detection for object processing
Speed measurement on a metallic gear wheel
Inductive sensors detect any metal parts, whether moving or idle. Sensor operation is non-interacting. Due to their high reserve capacities, the sensors are impervious to any material adhering to the sensing surface, such as metal chips. The sensors are ideal for industrial use. They operate on non-contact sensing, are free from wear and capable of high switching frequencies at yet high switching accuracy. In addition, they are reliably protected against vibration, dust and moisture.
