IFM Inductive Sensors

IFM Inductive Sensors

Valve monitoring and continuous feedback for efficient plant operation.

Whether temperatures, pressure values, flows or levels: Numerous other process parameters have to be permanently monitored. In industrial process technology valve sensors are one of many pieces of the puzzle. We now offer a wide range of position sensors for these applications.

Our valve sensors meet the requirements of different industries:

  • Food industry – The sensors need to be ingress-resistant also during cleaning processes using steam jets. ifm offers IP 68 / IP 69K.
  • Water / wastewater – Moisture and dirt do not affect operation.
  • Paper processing – Even when they are covered with cellulose pulp beyond recognition, the valve sensors continue to function correctly.
  • Mobile machines – Vibration and shock stress as well as temperature differences do not affect the sensors.
  • Chemicals – ATEX sensors for hazardous areas.


IFM Position Sensor

Reliable Position Feedback for Valve Actuators

  • Dual inductive sensor for pneumatic actuators and valves 
  • Continuous & Reliable Position Feedback
  • Designed for simple fit to common actuators based on VDI / VDE 3845
