Schmersal Inductive Proximity Sensor, 30V DC, 200mA – IFL Series – IFL-2-8M-10P


Precisely detect and position metal objects with this inductive proximity sensor from Schmersal. Its non-contact electronic switching function means there’s no bounce when switching direct current, ensuring reliable and consistent sensing. The device features integrated short circuit and current overload protection to increase safety. The nickel-plated brass housing offers resistance against corrosion, so the component is suitable for use in humid environments. As it doesn’t make contact with other objects, it’s less likely to be damaged by mechanical wear, ensuring long-lasting, reliable operation.


Features & Benefits


• Abrasion-resistant PVC (polyvinyl chloride) cable mantle for durability
• Meets IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) safety standards for low-voltage switchgear
• IP67 (ingress protection) rating means it’s dust-tight and water-resistant for use in demanding environments




• Automated production lines
• Hoisting and lifting
• Packaging warehouses
• Safety systems


How does a proximity sensor work?


A proximity sensor uses an oscillating circuit to generate a concentrated, high-frequency electromagnetic field. This determines the presence of ferrous metal objects. It converts a change in its oscillating amplitude into an electrical signal, which then causes the sensor to change its switching state.
