ifm products are distinguished by highest precision and above-average reliability.ifm is always in motion. Constantly, innovations are developed, products optimised and system solutions adapted.At the beginning it was passion driving the founders to make it better. To develop sensors with extraordinary quality and reliability and to provide unequalled customer service. It was with this vision and knowing that 'quality' by far exceeds the actual product that ifm started in October 1969.


ifm's exceptionally large product range does not only consider all relevant standard solutions, but also the specific requirements of individual industries. Apart from position and process sensors, this product range also includes sensors for motion control and safety technology. In addition to this, ifm offers products for industrial image processing and communication as well as identification systems for mobile machines.

 

POSITION SENSORS : Position sensors being an indispensable element in industrial applications is reliable to detect positions on machines. As compared to mechanical switches, inductive, capacitive and magnetic sensors offer almost ideal conditions: operation without contact and wear as well as high switching frequencies and accuracy. In addition, they are insensitive to vibration, dust and moisture.Cylinder sensors are used for position detection of pistons in pneumatic cylinders.In industrial processes where liquids, air or gases are used, valves are needed for dosing and control. Valve sensors have reliable signal that signals the positions of valve actuators, valves, slides and flaps.

SENSORS FOR MOTION CONTROL : In industrial applications where it is necessary to monitor drives for rotational speed or standstill, measure speeds, frequencies, distances, angles or positions and display, process and transmit current process values ifm sensors play a major role. In the automotive, food, steel and mining industries, speed sensors are used to safely detect standstill, overspeed and underspeed of drives or belt break on conveyors and on mobile machines such as fork-lift trucks, speed sensors serve as speed pick-ups they are extensively used. In the materials handling and wood industry, encoders have become established as reliable instruments for position and linear measurement.

INDUSTRIAL IMAGING : In automation technology visions sensors are an integral part of assembly and manufacturing tasks as well as quality control. In a robust, industrially compatible housing, the vision sensors combine lighting, lens, camera chip, evaluation and process connections for the integration in the higher-level controller.Applications can be found in the area of packaging, storage and materials handling, airport logistics, collision avoidance, robotics, and monitoring of space and persons.The illumination units generate a homogeneous light field with visible red or invisible infrared light - either for virtually shadow-free object illumination or for emphasising surface characteristics such as dot-peened codes, scratches or nicks.

SAFETY TECHNOLOGY : The ifm product range comprises a multitude of safety products including electro-sensitive protective equipment (ESPE), door switches, actuators and control systems. Unlike conventional safety switches, inductive safety sensors directly detect metal - without requiring a special target. Safety light curtains and safety light grids are used where hazardous areas must be secured. They are optoelectronic safety devices consisting of one transmitter and one receiver. They conform to the safety requirements of type 2 / SIL 1 or type 4 / SIL 3. AS-i door switches with guard locking have the function to keep moving protective equipment such as protective grating, protective guards and other covers closed as long as a dangerous state is present. The safe mushroom-headed E-stop buttons and other protective switches force a machine or installation to stop or shut down in a hazardous situation.

PROCESS SENSORS : Flow sensors monitor the coolant and lubricant supply of machines, power units and industrial furnaces or ensure ventilation of installations and buildings. Electronic level sensors monitor filling levels of liquids or bulk materials in containers, tanks and silos.In the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, temperature sensors are used to ensure that products are at the correct temperature. In machine tool and automotive applications, the temperature or temperature difference measured at drives, gears and motors plays an important role as an indicator of the machine condition. In the steel, metal and glass industries, temperature monitoring of cooling circuits serves to prevent overheating of plants.

INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATION : The actuator-sensor interface (AS-i) is a manufacturer-independent standard for the connection of actuators and sensors of the first field level. AS-Interface has become established as an economic wiring system in industrial automation. A two-wire flat cable transmits data and energy. This considerably reduces wiring complexity since conventional parallel wiring of each sensor or actuator to the controller is no longer necessary. It also saves the user a great number of terminals, splitter boxes, input/output cards and cable lines. AS-i gateways with integrated PLC function control the data exchange to the sensor/actuator level and communicate rapidly with the superior control level. They can be used as independent, decentralised controllers or as gateways to all common fieldbus systems. The range includes interfaces with EtherNet/IP, Profibus, Profinet, EtherCAT or CANopen.

IO LINK : IO-Link is a manufacturer-independent point-to-point communication system used to connect sensors and actuators to an automation system. An IO-Link system consists of an IO-Link master and several IO-Link devices. The IO-Link master represents the interface to the controller or fieldbus level and communicates with the connected IO-Link devices. IO-Link is capable of processing switching signals of binary sensors, process values of analogue sensors and their parameters in a purely digital form based on a 24 V signal. This eliminates measuring value errors associated with the transmission and conversion of analogue signals.

IDENTIFICATION SYSTEMS : In production, intralogistics and conveying, automated identification based on 1D/2D codes or RFID labels has become a standard. Such automated identification systems enable the requirements-driven distribution of goods or assembly components as well as their traceability in real time. As a result, manufacturing and supply processes can be fully automatically controlled and seamlessly documented. In RF identification systems, workpiece or goods carriers are marked by RFID transponders, i.e., ID tags. Antennas enable non-contact reading from and/or writing to such ID tags. These data are immediately transferred to an RFID evaluation unit, where they are processed. The RFID evaluation unit transmits the data to the PLC via fieldbus interfaces such as PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET, Ethernet IP, Ethernet TCP/IP or EtherCAT. Applications are found in production lines, where the units are used for material flow control.
