ifm efector , a sensor manufacturer, provides application solutions for several important areas of the food industry.
AS-interface from ifm efector provides ease of communication up to a high level, and is a manufacturer independent standard for connection of sensors and transmitters, providing high reliability and machine uptime.
Modular structure and flexible connection technology ensures AS-i can easily be integrated into existing control systems.
Cost optimised – A two wire cable transmits data and energy, therefore complex parallel wiring is no longer necessary.
Within the food industry, sensors are exposed to extreme conditions, including acids, alkalis, cleaning agents, foam guns, temperature shocks, high-pressure cleaners and high air humidity. Therefore, the requirements on the wiring technology used are really high.
Processline – ifm efector’s splitter boxes and field modules are specially tailored to the high demands in the food industry.
Stainless steel insulation displacement connector – Ecolab certified FC insulation displacement connector with protection rating IP 68 / IP 69 K for the connection of intelligent AS-i participants.
Stainless steel splitter boxes – flat cable splitter boxes made of stainless steel pick up the AS-i voltage and the external 24V supply from the AS-i flat cable.
TAA temperature sensor – Temperature transmitter with good response time, high mechanical stability and protection rating IP 69K.
PCB – it makes valve tops AS-i compatible.
Pressure sensors – special series for hygienic areas monitor for example the pressure in the food and beverage industries.
ifm efector provides customers with German engineered and manufactured sensor and control solutions for automation.
ifm efector’s product ranges include position sensors and object recognition, fluid sensors and diagnostic systems, bus systems and identification systems, control systems and connection technology.
