  • Capacitive IFM Proximity Sensors and Switches Capacitive IFM Proximity Sensors and Switches
  • Multiple product options available

    This capacitive proximity sensor is designed to monitor levels of liquids and dry bulk material in nonmetallic tanks. It can detect both conductive and non-conductive materials, but is most commonly used for sensing plastics, liquids, powders and granular materials. It does not require contact with the medium being monitored.

    Multiple product options available

  • Inductive IFM Proximity Sensors and Switches Inductive IFM Proximity Sensors and Switches
  • Multiple product options available

    These inductive proximity sensors are designed for noncontact detection of metal targets in position-sensing applications and part-presence applications. Each features an extended sensing range and robust housing design to reduce failure from mechanical damage in industrial applications.

Grainger offers a wide selection of popular infrared, acoustic, capacitive and inductive proximity switches and proximity sensors to meet your manufacturing, robotics, and security application needs. A proximity switch opens or closes an electrical circuit when sensors detect objects within a certain distance. The type of material to be detected often requires the use of a specific type of proximity sensor. For example, an inductive proximity sensor is preferred for accurate, non-contact detection of metallic objects in machinery or automation equipment. A capacitive sensor can detect both conductive and non-conductive materials, but is most commonly used for sensing plastics, liquids, powders and granular materials. No matter what type of proximity switch or sensor you need, count on Grainger to carry it.
