IMB Inductive Sensor Offers More Durable Solution for Harsh Environments

IP 69K enclosure rating, extended temperature range, and stainless steel housing ensure a long-lasting solution and reduced downtime

SICK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders and automatic identification solutions for factory, logistics, and process automation, today announced the launch of the IMB inductive sensor, a high-performance inductive sensor for harsh environments.  

With an IP 69K-rated stainless steel housing, extended temperature range of -40…+100 ⁰C, and improved shock and vibration resistance up to 50g, the IMB offers high reliability and a long life expectancy in harsh working conditions such as outdoor applications and machine tooling. The durability of the IMB inductive sensor saves costs and time by reducing the risk of machine downtime.

The IMB inductive sensor also features highly precise sensing ranges thanks to SICK’s latest ASIC technology. Additional features include self-locking nuts, a visual installation aid, and IO-Link communication that ensure easy and fast installation.
