Inductive proximity sensors

Analog sensors with triple sensing range for use in industrial environments

Your Benefits

  • High positioning accuracy
  • No mechanical add-on parts required for monitoring of great distances
  • Less space required for the same sensing range when compared with standard sensors
  • Less storage due to reduced multiplicity of types on account of integrated current and voltage interface
  • Large detection areas


Analog sensors with triple sensing range for use in industrial environments

The IMA inductive analog sensors give out a current or voltage signal which is in proportional relation to the distance from the sensor to the metal target. They are therefore optimally suited for monitoring travel paths, positions or even differentiating between spaces and material variants. These sensors are characterized by extremely large detection ranges up to 40 mm, high accuracy, precision and no blind areas.
