New pressure sensor with IO-Link
2nd Quarter 2019, Hydraulic systems & components


Besides continuous process value monitoring via IO-Link, the new PV type pressure sensor from ifm electronic offers two switching outputs. It also features a compact design with G ¼ process connection and is distinguished by a switch point accuracy of < ±0,5% and a repeatability < ±0,05%.

Miniaturisation for industrial applications

The new sensor features a thin-film measuring cell directly welded with the process connection. This technology guarantees high accuracy in a very compact housing with only 19 mm across flats at an optimum price/performance ratio.

With the sealless design of the process connection, the sensors can be used not only in hydraulic applications but also in inert gases. In industrial applications, the laser labelling on the housing is advantageous. Even in adverse environmental conditions, the sensor remains permanently identifiable. Another benefit is the integrated IO-Link interface. Thanks to IO-Link, the new pressure sensor continuously transmits process values and other important data, e.g. a pressure peak counter. Moreover, the digital measurement results are more accurate because there are no conversion losses by D/A converters or external influences (e.g. cable lengths). So thanks to IO-Link, the user is well prepared for Industry 4.0.
