Inductive proximity sensors IMC

Category Tag
  • Advanced diagnostic options ensure stable processes
  • Programmable switching thresholds and windows make predictive maintenance easier and reduce machine downtimes
  • Switching point teaching enables precise object positioning without the need for time-consuming adjustment
  • Reduced costs as fewer sensors or sensor variants are required
  • Stable signals thanks to integrated debounce function
  • Reduced project planning and cabling work as complex tasks are easy to implement directly in the process
  • Future-proof thanks to IO-Link 1.1 communication


The inductive, intelligent, and, thanks to IO-Link 1.1, communication-enabled IMC proximity sensors offer a whole host of new options to make handling applications easier and more reliable in every industry. Up to four individual switching points or windows including the hysteresis can be set. Equipped with two freely programmable switching end stages, an IMC can therefore replace several conventional devices. Adjustable switch-on and switch-off delays help to reliably suppress unwanted switching pulses in harsh environments. The additional on-board functions, such as logic modules, temperature measurement, counters, or time measurement enable complex tasks to be completed with ease directly in the sensor.
