The inductive safety switches of the IME2S product family are used for safe position and area monitoring. Thanks to the very compact design and wide range of connection variants, they offer optimum integration into the machine design. The IME2S switches work without making contact and are low-wear. The inductive safety switches do not require a separate actuator to do their monitoring tasks. On the contrary, they are generally activated by metals, for example on machines. Due to the large response range, the safety switches allow for assembly tolerances, simplifying mounting and adjustment. The IME2S can be connected to a safe control solution via its self-monitoring switching outputs (OSSDs), allowing for high safety with PL d (EN ISO 13849).

The highest standard of position and presence detection
Many machines require safety switches for safe position and presence detection. Thanks to the many variants of the IME2S, it satisfies individual customer requirements with ease. One of its greatest strengths is the precise, non-contact detection of metallic machine parts without a special actuator. Depending on the switch size, it can achieve a sensing range of up to 15 mm.
Many variants with optimal response range
The right switch size for any requirement: The IME2S non-contact safety switch
It can be optimally adjusted in just a few steps
The IME2S can be integrated into the machine with or without a bracket and is easy to adjust. It is also characterized by its high degree of flexibility when it comes to connections. It reliably detects the position of a machine part up to performance level d. Thanks to the two OSSD outputs with test pulses, it reliably detects short- and cross-circuits, therefore ensuring a high level of safety.
Fast adjustment, high tolerance
The IME2S inductive safety switch enables precise adjustment for optimal productivity.
