For sensing applications exposed to temperatures from -25 to +180°C (13 to 356°F), Baumer offers the IFRH Series of inductive high-temperature sensors, a family of two-part proximity switches available in M8, M12, and M18 designs with chromium nickel steel housings. Intended for flush-face installation, the sensors are designed to detect the presence of metal targets. With an overall length of 30 mm (1.2 in), the M8 sensor is designed for use in limited-space applications. Nominal switching distance ranges from 1.5 to 5 mm (0.06 to 0.2 in), depending on the housing size. A jacketed cable connects the sensor’s temperature-sensitive processing electronics to the sensor head, protecting the electronics from damage. IFRH sensors offer an operating voltage range between 10- to 30-V dc and are suitable for use in marine, aerospace, automotive, fabrication, oil processing, chemical processing, and water-treatment applications.
