The economic standard for use in industrial environments

SICK’s inductive sensors offer precise detection, less downtime and a long service life. The inductive IME sensors pack high technology into the smallest of spaces. The integrated ASIC chip enables digital adjustment after the end of the manufacturing process. The saving of values in the ASIC ensures highly precise switching points and very high repeatability of values – for any number of production runs. IM sensors are completely encapsulated with hotmelt molding, which greatly increases shock and vibration resistance. The customer benefits from high positioning accuracy in the machine and long-term reliability.
