IFM Flow Sensors
IFM flow monitors have an integrated control monitor or external amplifier – available to suit industrial flow sensing applications and hazardous areas (ATEX certified sensors available for Zone 1 & Zone 2 hazardous area locations).
Also available are IFM air-flow monitors, thermal compressed air meters for leakage monitoring and consumed quantity meters for special gas flow sensing.
IFM Pressure Sensors
IFM pressure sensors have a high overload resistance, a universal process fitting via an adapter and an alphanumeric LED display.
IFM pressure sensors are maintenance free with long term stability and setting of the switch points is possible without system pressure.
Special versions for process technology and integration into hydraulic / pneumatic networks are available.
IFM Level Sensors
IFM capacitive level sensors for liquids, dry bulk material and increased noise immunity.
Additionally, IFM level sensors with a local level indication and point level sensors with approvals to the German overspill standard WHG Section 19 are available.
IFM capacitive sensors are used for the non-contact detection of any objects. In contrast to inductive sensors, which only detect metallic objects, capacitive sensors can also detect non-metallic materials. Typical applications are in the wood, paper, glass, plastic, food and chemical industries.
How Do Capacitive Sensors Operate?
The capacitance between the active electrode of the IFM Electronic sensor and the electrical earth potential is measured – an approaching object influences the electrical alternating field between these two “capacitor plates”. IFM capacitive sensors are suitable for use with metallic and non-metallic objects. In principle, capacitive sensors work with an RC oscillator – a minor change in capacitance is sufficient to influence the oscillation amplitude. The evaluation electronics converts this into a switched signal and the sensitivity level can be set with a potentiometer.
IFM Temperature Sensors
IFM offer control monitors with integrated sensors or for the connection of probe / cable sensors – PT100 & PT1000 versions are available. A universal process connection is possible via an adapter as well as an alphanumeric LED display. Temperature sensors with an integrated drift monitoring, diagnostic and backup function is available as well as analogue / switching outputs.
