The rugged standard for use in harsh ambient conditions
The inductive IMB proximity sensor is a byword for reliability in harsh working conditions, whether it is in contact with cooling lubricants or being used outdoors. With its extended sensing ranges, made highly precise thanks to the use of SICK ASIC technology, the IMB ensures reliable, stable processes. What's more, its wide-ranging specification limits allow the IMB to be used in applications where specialist devices were once the only solution – a huge benefit when it comes to product selection and warehousing. The optical adjustment indicator and self-locking nuts save time during commissioning and help cut down on errors. Communication via IO-Link is also possible, creating more flexibility and adding more functions for automation applications. With an extensive standard product portfolio available, even special devices can be put into action quickly and easily.
