IMI: Rugged full metal sensors

Tough, tougher, toughest.

Demanding applications with mechanical and chemical loads, for example impacts or cleaning processes with aggressive media present a great challenge to conventional sensors. Not so for the IMI full metal sensor from SICK. With its closed housing made entirely from stainless steel, it stands up to these operating conditions with ease thus deservedly ranking as the most durable and rugged of its kind. Long sensing ranges and communication via IO-Link ensure high process stability and plant availability while also enabling applications to be implemented more flexibly and cost-effectively.

Inductive safety switches

Safe position monitoring up to PL e

The compact size and flexible connections of the SICK inductive safety switches play a key role in safe position monitoring, for example in robotics and AGV applications. The safety switches are not only small and versatile but also provide non-contact operation which keeps wear to a minimum.

Inductive proximity sensors

Ready for any task. In any environment.

No matter the tasks, whether detection, counting or positioning: SICK’s inductive proximity sensors detect the presence and distance of metallic objects with high precision and reliability - and with practically no wear and regardless of the environmental conditions.

With the newest ASIC technology, SICK sensors work much more precisely than standard discretely mounted devices. The most important requirements we place on our inductive sensors are precision, maximum availability and a long service life.

Sensors with 3 times the sensing range

Stable processes and high plant availability thanks to 3xSn

At SICK, it is a thing of the past that the sensing range of inductive proximity sensors is limited to just a few millimeters. The keyword is 3xSn: Sensors with extreme sensing range over several centimeters. No matter the range of applications, whether in industrial environments, mechanical engineering or the food industry: Save space in the machine with the user of smaller sensors with identical sensing ranges to larger standard sensors. Or lower the risk of mechanical damage due to the option of mounting the sensor farther from the detection object and ensure stable processes and high plant availability.
