Miniature sensors for industrial applications

The inductive proximity sensors in the IMM product family stand out from the crowd thanks to their low spatial requirements and high reliability. Their state-of-the-art ASIC technology offers miniaturization without compromise. And with maximum performance, sensing ranges of up to 4 mm, integrated electronics, suppressors, and output state LEDs, they offer everything you could possibly want. Their small size and low weight make these inductive miniature sensors ideal for performing highly dynamic pick-and-place applications, integrating into compact assemblies, and monitoring faster handling and mounting processes. Thanks to the IO-Link communication, the sensors are also ideally equipped for future requirements.
