Cylindrical inductive safety sensors

19 May 2020

SICK has launched the SICK IME2S inductive proximity safety switch for safe and easy non-contact position and safe area monitoring to help prevent accidents and unwanted collisions in production and logistics environments up to PL d (EN ISO 13849) safety requirements.

SICK has redeveloped its cylindrical inductive safety sensor to deliver a more compact, wear-free device that can be integrated into machines without the need for a separate actuator. Using the inductive sensing principle to enable non-contact detection of metal objects, the IP67-rated IME2S offers high machine availability, even in dusty and high-moisture industrial environments 

The new SICK IME2S replaces the SICK IN3000 sensor with an extended performance range of up to 15mm. It uses two self-monitoring OSSD outputs to ensure consistent reliable signalling to actuators and safe control systems, complying with Category 2, PL d, and SIL2. 

The SICK IME2S offer a field sensing range of between 4mm and 15mm without a blind-zone with a working temperature range of -25 to +70°C.
