Inductive proximity sensors IMS

  • Maximum operating times due to rugged sensor technology, even in harsh environments that are subjected to severe weather conditions
  • Stable and fault-free processes thanks to high electromagnetic compatibility and very precise detection
  • Extensive portfolio with application-specific special variants
  • Worldwide availability due to global SICK sales network and countless approvals
Category: Tag:



The IMS inductive proximity sensors combine tried-and-tested, rugged SICK mechanics with advanced electronics. With the E1 type approval by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, the sensors are especially well-suited for use in mobile machines. The IMS products feature protection against load dump, electromagnetic compatibility and a large voltage range of 7.2 V to 60 V DC. Versions with connecting cables offer enough hold for mobile male connectors due to the oil-resistant material and a 0.5 mm² cross section of these cables. The ambient temperature range is from –40 °C to +100 °C, thereby enabling sensor function in any weather.
