Rectangular miniature sensors for use in industrial environments

The IQM sensors with their rectangular miniature designs are real space-savers. Thanks to the low heights of a minimum of 4.7 mm and fully-integrated electronics, they set new standards and contribute to the miniaturization of modules and machines. Extended sensing ranges of up to 3 mm enable reliable position queries even in challenging applications. The IQM sensors can be permanently installed quickly with only one screw.
