Inductive Sensors Measure Distances to 2 mm

Inductive Sensors Measure Distances to 2 mm

Baumer's IWFM 08 Series of Inductive Sensors are for limited space distance measurement and positioning applications involving metal targets. The sensors measure 4.7 x 8 x 16 mm and have resolutions of <0.001 mm at sensing distances up to 2 mm and offer high linearity and repeat accuracy.

IWFM 08 Series sensors feature an integrated 0 to 10V output to allow them to be directly connected to the analog outputs of a control system and eliminates the need for measuring boards or processing units. These IP67-rated sensors are contained in a die-cast zinc/nickel-plated housing to prevent damage during installation and operation.

IWFM 08 Series Inductive Sensors are designed for use in factory automation and assembly/handling applications including:

  • automotive production
  • electronic manufacturing
  • injection molding
  • laboratory automation
  • medical equipment
  • metalworking
  • packaging
  • printing/graphics solar cell/PV manufacturing
  • textile production
  • wood/lumber processing

These sensors are also useful in highly precise end use applications such as:
  • controlling robotic grippers
  • cranes/lifts
  • medical scanning equipment
  • industrial drilling machines
