Contamination alarms for Inductive proximity sensors

Even the simple inductive proximity sensor is becoming smart. This short video shows how the extra data we now get from a SICK IMC inductive sensor can prevent unplanned downtime due to contamination.

Contamination alarm is one of the many new benefits we can get from this enhanced range of Inductive sensors available from RS. Multiple switching points and window modes can be set and data such as counters and internal temperature is available.
