THE new high-temperature IF6074 range of inductive sensors from ifm electronic is specially designed for the steel and glass industries. They are also suited for other hot environments and applications, such as industrial furnaces, burners and incinerators.
Standard sensors are not suited for temperatures above 100°C as electronic components and tin solder would be damaged. Thanks to the special mechanical construction and the use of select materials and electronic components, the ifm sensors are perfectly suited for temperatures up to 180 °C. With a compact and sturdy design, the new series offers maximum long-term stability and reliability even under the most challenging operating conditions.
The sensors have a compact design since sensor and evaluation electronics are housed in one unit and they provide greater flexibility thanks to their M12, M18, M30 and M50 stainless steel housings. In addition, their 5 m silicone cable allows terminals to be outside the critical area.
