The inductive safety switches of the IME2S product family are used for safe position and area monitoring. Thanks to the very compact design and wide range of connection variants, they offer optimum integration into the machine design. The IME2S switches work without making contact and are low-wear. The inductive safety switches do not require a separate actuator to do their monitoring tasks. On the contrary, they are generally activated by metals, for example on machines. Due to the large response range, the safety switches allow for assembly tolerances, simplifying mounting and adjustment. The IME2S can be connected to a safe control solution via its self-monitoring switching outputs (OSSDs), allowing for high safety with PL d (EN ISO 13849).
