IBIS Electro-Products sells Dietz Sensortechnik and Disoric GmbH sensors. They are both companies located in Germany where industrial sensors are engineered as well as manufactured at the highest standards.

IBIS Electro-Products Offers Various Types of Automation Sensors Worldwide

IBIS Electro-Products sells Dietz Sensortechnik and Disoric GmbH sensors. They are both companies located in Germany where sensors are engineered as well as manufactured at the highest standards.

There are many different types of sensors available but the ones typically seen in automation are: fork and slot sensors, photoelectric sensors, ultrasonic sensors, frame sensors, capactive sensors, and inductive sensors.

Automation sensors are devices that detect and measure physical properties, such as temperature, light, sound, motion, and pressure, and convert them into electrical signals that can be read and interpreted by automation systems. There are many different types of automation sensors available, each with its own unique features and capabilities. Some of the most common types include:

  • Proximity sensors: These sensors detect the presence or absence of objects within a certain range and are commonly used for detecting the position of moving parts in machinery.
  • Photoelectric sensors: These sensors use light to detect the presence or absence of an object and are commonly used for detecting the position of parts on a conveyor belt.
  • Ultrasonic sensors: These sensors use high-frequency sound waves to detect the presence or absence of an object and are commonly used for measuring distance and detecting the position of parts on a conveyor belt.
  • Temperature sensors: These sensors measure temperature and are commonly used for monitoring the temperature of machinery and processes.
  • Pressure sensors: These sensors measure pressure and are commonly used for monitoring the pressure of fluids and gases in industrial processes.
  • Accelerometer sensors: These sensors measure acceleration and are commonly used for detecting vibrations and shocks in machinery.

These are just a few examples of the many different types of automation sensors that are available. Each sensor has its own unique features and capabilities, and the choice of sensor will depend on the specific application and requirements.

nylon, polyurethane (PU), and polypropylene (PP).

Corrugated plastic conduits are available in liquidtight non-split and non-liquidtight split versions

Corrugated nylon conduits of PA6 and PA12 have the best overall features of all the conduits.

  • Highly flexible
  • Suitable for reverse and multi-directional bending
  • Non-collapsing walls on tight bends, no-kinking
  • Very broad temperature ranges
  • New multilayer versions offer the highest flexibility and additional wall strength
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Best smoke, toxicity, and flammability ratings
  • Excellent tolerance and stability to chemicals in the installation environment
  • Ease and speed of installation
  • Most industry certifications and approvals

The availability of a wide range of quick connect conduit fittings like Flexaquick

Application:

Pros: machine building, robotics and high motion equipment, railway passenger car inside and outside wiring, security and HDTV cameras, signage wiring, automated systems, packaging machines, autonomous vehicles, electric-vehicles, renewable solar & wind power generation, medical fiber optic bundle protection 

Cons: not the best choice for food and pharma applications due to the corrugations and the stringent cleaning required in this industry

Corrugated PU conduits have a broad application temperature range and chemical tolerance. They are the most flexible corrugated conduits however, become flimsy on longer installation runs and may need additional mounting support.

Corrugated PP conduits typically have a broad temperature range combined with very good chemical stability and tolerance. Split versions are often used in simpler applications needing non-liquidtight, easy to use, quick install, flexible wire bundling, like under the hood around automotive engines, trailers and the like.

You use sensors when trying to automate something on a piece of machinery or equipment. You use the sensor to detect, or sense, a product, item, level, or temperature. The different types of sensors can detect depending on what you are trying to sense. If you are trying to detect a metal object than you can use both photoelectric red-light sensor as well as capacitive sensor. If you are trying to detect a plastic item than photoelectric redlight would be the optimal one.

The sensors we provide are typically die-cast zinc, stainless steel, and plastic. The die-cast zinc sensors are strong enough for most applications and are by far the most popular type of material.  There are also a number of sensors available that are stainless steel to provide extra protection in harsh environments such as food and medical production. We also have a number of small sensors that are made of plastic and are typically used in light duty applications.
