Reliable solutions for long-range object detection and level applications
The O1D laser sensor provides non-contact distance measurement
up to 10 meters. For longer distances, the O1D106 provides a
distance measurement of 75 meters when used with a reflector.
To measure level in food processing applications, the O1D300 is
specifically designed for this application and offers a range of up to 10 meters.
Contained in a compact, robust metal housing that measures only 42 mm x 42 mm,
the sensor is suited for food and beverage applications and mounts easily in applica-
tions with limited space. The sensors display can be programmed for two setpoints
or for one setpoint and one analog output. The display can also provide distance
values in inches, millimeters or meters.
ifm O1D advantage
Background suppression and ultrasonic
sensors are lower-cost alternatives for
distance measurement but have shorter
ranges. Traditional time-of-flight systems
offer an improved level of performance
but are much higher in cost. The ifm O1D
sensor combines the advantages of these
systems at an affordable price.

Quarter-turn valve position sensors
Quarter-turn valves with pneumatic actuators are used for process control in food
processing applications. Typical applications include tank farms, diverter valves, valve
skids, and valve banks. Accurately detecting the position of the valve is critical for
process control. Traditionally, switchboxes have been used for position feedback.
However, switchboxes are large, mounting is complex and malfunction is common.
ifm offers a low-profile, non-contact solution that accurately detects when a valve is
open or closed.

and Ethernet
Parallel wiring is replaced by a 2-wire cable
carrying both data and power
AS-i valve position sensors
Integrated AS-i networking connection for pneumatic valves
Valve applications such as tank farms and valve skids require
a large number of feedback devices. These devices are
connected back to a PLC which monitors valve position.
With the growing number of valves being used and minimal
plant floor space available, wiring has become time-
consuming and difficult to troubleshoot. To reduce wiring, a
simple solution is to apply the AS-i networking system.
AS-i networks an entire system of valves with only one 2-wire cable, completely
eliminating wire bundles. Valve position sensors with AS-i connectivity provide an
integrated connection for the solenoid valve. Connection to the control unit is made
with a 2-wire AS-i cable.
This solution provides remote indication of valve status and can connect to higher
level bus systems via DeviceNet, Profibus, and Ethernet. Up to 62 quarter-turn valve
feedback devices and 62 solenoids can be connected to one AS-i master.
Connects to higher-level bus systems
Provides non-contact valve position
Sensor and puck feature low-profile design that is one-quarter the size of a

The valve sensor uses an integrated output for the solenoid valve.
Mounts on all ISO standard type actuators.

Continuous position feedback of rising stem valves
The efector valvis rising stem valve position sensor is an innovative solution for
indicating the position of linear valves. The sensor continuously detects the position
of rising stem valves with a stroke of up to 80mm.
The sensor is placed on top of the the valve stem with an adapter. Using the sen-
sors pushbutton setup, the open and closed positions of the valve are established.
The sensor indicates three key positions of the valve: valve open, valve closed and
any intermediate position, e.g., seat lift. efector valvis sends this information
to a controller.
The efector valvis sensor reliably detects the position of the stem at a resolution of
0.2mm and eliminates all mechanical adjustments and significantly reduces setup
time of a valve.
Single seat and double seat valves
For double seat valves, efector valvis detects the
open, closed and seat lift cleaning position. For
single seat valves, the sensor detects the open and
closed positions and provides an additional output
for seal contact wear.

Potatoes in 3D
First industrial 3D level sensor that
evaluates volume of food product
Accurately detects food level in bins and
hoppers and on vibratory conveyors
Ideal alternative to point-level sensors
that monitor only one point of reference
Sensor withstands harsh indoor and
outdoor environments
Provides switching and analog outputs for
application versatility
Compact sensor uses reliable time-of-
flight distance measurement
Vision sensors
Solution: ifms Level Sensor uses an array
of sensing elements to indicate true level
ifms O3D Level Sensor monitors the entire
area of a hopper. The sensor then averages out
the hills and valleys to provide an accurate
indication of level.
Challenge: point level is not an indication
of true level
Ultrasonic or optical point level sensors monitor
only a single point versus an entire area. When
hills and valleys are present in the product,
accurate level is not actually indicated.
The right level measurement can help you improve your food processing
operation with higher accuracy and better efficiency
The O3D Level Sensor is designed to evaluate the volume and level of product in
food processing applications. A common challenge in many food processing
applications is determining the accurate level of food in a hopper due to hills and
valleys that are created by shifting product. The compact, easy-to-use O3D Level
Sensor can view an entire area of food product to determine its overall volume.
Bread baking
The O3D Level sensor
can detect if bread pans
are underfilled or
overfilled for proper
food production.
Raw materials in
feeders/conveyors
The O3D Level Sensor
can detect raw materials
in feeders and on vibra-
tory conveyors. The sen-
sor can be used both
indoors and outdoors
with no impact from
external ambient light.
O3D Level Sensor offer solutions to
typical food processing applications

ifms O3D Level Sensor can improve uptime throughout the food production process
Level of food on
a conveyor
The volume of
delicate food, such
as potato chips,
can become too
concentrated on
one area of the
conveyor and
begin to break.
Bulk level of
grains and
powders
Grains and powders
can shift within the
bin creating hills
and valleys, leading
to inaccurate level
detection.
Contents in a box
In fast packaging
applications, a box
of bottles only
partially filled can
go undetected.
View level in 3D
The 3D Level sensor
can help maintain
an even distribution
of product on a
vibratory conveyor.
Monitoring in real
time, the sensor will
help to prevent
food breakage and
overflows.
View level in 3D
The sensors pixel
array spreads across
the grain to detect the
entire area. The high
and low points are
identified and can be
used for direct output
or averaged to provide
a more accurate level
of available space.
View contents in 3D
The O3D sensor
evaluates the entire
contents of a box
and sends an alarm
output based on
packaging errors.

Perimeter guarding
Light curtains can be

alarm when a passerby
penetrates the perimeter
of a hazardous zone.
Access prevention
ifms light grids can be
used to detect the
presence of personnel
and signal the machine
controller to stop while
personnel are present
within the area.
Application solutions
ifm's safety light curtains and grids provide an optical solution for protecting plant
personnel in unsafe work areas. Unlike mechanical options such as safety gates and
pull-back restraints, ifm's hands-free solution eliminates excessive handling when
entering hazardous areas and using equipment.
ifms safety light curtains and grids consist of an emitter and receiver pair that create
a multi-beam barrier of infrared light in front of, or around, a hazardous area. When
any of the beams are blocked by intrusion in the sensing field, the light curtain
sends a signal to the machines e-stop.

Pressure sensors designed for common
homogenizer applications
Simple pushbutton setup allows the sen-
sor to be adjusted in less than 5 minutes
Each sensor has multiple outputs for
flexibility
Integrated built-in display eliminates the
need for a reference gauge
Ceramic sensing element provides long-
term stability of pressure measurement
Monitoring homogenization
Homogenizers are used to emulsify one liquid into another or to evenly distribute
solids throughout a liquid to improve the products stability and other characteris-
tics. In the dairy industry, milk product is pumped into a homogenizer and, under
very high pressure, pushed through small screens. This breaks up the fat globules
in the milk and creates a consistent homogeneous mixture.
For repeatable process results, homogenizing pressure can be monitored and
controlled using ifm pressure sensors designed specifically for this purpose.
PY9970 is fitted with a mounting block and diaphragm seal filled with an FDA-
approved fluid. PY9000 is designed to mount with fittings already existing on
the homogenizer.

Steam pigtail protects instruments from
failure due to excessive temperature
Simple pushbutton setup of the sensor
allows for adjustment in less than 5 minutes
Ceramic pressure sensor element is more

Units available with analog and switching
outputs for DC applications and a solid

Steam is used in many industrial applications for food processing, drying, building
heating, etc. with typical saturated steam parameters of 150 psi at 350 F. Standard
pressure sensors are rated below 200 F and sanitary pressure sensors are rated
below 300 F. The steam pigtail (also known as siphon or condensate loop) is
commonly used to protect instruments from exposure to high temperature.
As steam loses heat, it condenses back into water (known as condensate). The tem-
perature of the condensate is much lower than the temperature of the saturated
steam. The geometry of the pigtail allows the steam to condense through the loop
and provides an isolating temperature barrier for the sensor.
The UP0011 steam pigtail from ifm includes a 1/2 NPT male process connection for
the steam line, a manual isolation valve and a 1/4 NPT male connection to fit any
of the pressure sensors on the opposite page.
Very large temperature reductions
with the pigtail
The chart at right gives an approximation of
the temperature reduction when using a steam
pigtail. Use the following steps:
1. Find steam pressure across the bottom axis.
Example shows 150 psi.
2. Go straight up on the chart to the curve for
ambient temperature. Example shows 80 F.
3. Go straight across to find the estimated
temperature at the instrument. Example
shows approximately 128 F.

Thermal sensing principle with no moving
parts is more reliable than mechanical
switches
Versatile adapter system for various
sanitary connections
LED bar graph display for flow and
setpoint
Easy pushbutton setup with flexible
mounting
Versions are available with standard NPT
fittings for non-sanitary applications
Flow sensors for sanitary applications
The SI series flow sensors for sanitary applications are solid state alternatives to
mechanical flow switches for sensing the flow rate of liquids and gases. Because
there are no moving parts to jam or break, ifm efector flow switches eliminate the
maintenance headaches of mechanical flow switches.
Switching output, mounts in process
The one-piece sensor includes an LED status display and stainless steel RTD probe
in a compact unit. The probe is inserted directly into the medium. Application
parameters are set using the microprocessor-based pushbutton setup. The sensor
detects when the flow rate falls above or below the flow setpoint.
Multiple sanitary mounting options
ifm efector sanitary sensors connect to industry standard adapters and fittings.
This flexibility allows the sensor to be easily installed in many different applications
that have various mounting requirements.
Flow sensors

TP transmitter modules and
RTDs with integrated Tri-clamp

connections
TP module turns any RTD into a programmable
analog temperature transmitter
The innovative TP transmitter module with plug and play M12
connectors solves the common installation and environmental prob-
lems associated with conventional terminal chamber-head transmitters.
Error sources from screw terminals, wiring mistakes, and fluid ingress
are eliminated. An integrated LED gives local indication that the
transmitter is powered and transmitting.
Completely configurable
Compatible with any Pt100 or Pt1000 probe, the TP temperature
module verifies the type of RTD and automatically makes the correct
settings. Usable with 2, 3, or 4-wire RTDs, the TP can be scaled and
offset using ifms USB interface. With its overmolded construction,
the TP is suitable for harsh environments allowing for use in almost
any application.
New RTDs with integrated Tri-clamp

process connections
The TM 48xx and TM 49xx RTDs do not require a separate sanitary
process adapter. The one-piece RTD probe with integrated Tri-clamp
connection eliminates potential septic ingress points.
ifms revolutionary design incorporates a very thin sensor sheath which
minimizes the amount of thermal mass separating the RTD element
from the process media. This innovative design results in an extremely
fast 13 second response speed.
The RTD probes can be used with a RTD card on a plc rack, on a
temperature controller and on ifms TR sensors (pages 68 - 69).
Bulky traditional head
transmitters are costly
and are subject to
moisture ingress.
ifms compact TP
transmitter is rated to
withstand liquid ingress
and provide reliable
temperature indication

Dual RTD design allows for self-verifying
drift detection
Eliminates need for regular and costly
calibration checks
Increased process safety
The TAD temperature transmitter features two high-precision and stable RTD meas-
uring elements that monitor the process to ensure that a developing sensor drift is
detected and reliably diagnosed. If one element fails, the process continues with
the second measuring element (back-up function). Thus, no calibration is necessary.
With this technology, the TAD provides long-term, highly accurate temperature
indication in sanitary applications included in food, beverage and pasteurization
processes.
Using configuration software, drift thresholds and parameters can be easily set.
After the setpoints are established, the TAD continuously self-monitors temperature
drift. By providing immediate temperature drift detection, cyclical monitoring is no
longer necessary.

spectrum profiling technology to effectively eliminate challenges
with deposits, residue and foam build-up that commonly cause
traditional point-level sensors to output false signals.
The LMT sensor attaches to various mounting adapters to
provide a true sanitary mounting system. Typical applications
include monitoring point-level in storage tanks and protecting
pumps from run-dry conditions.
Plug and play setup
The LMT sensors are factory adjusted for specific media which
eliminates sensitivity adjustments and makes installation fast
and simple. A compact sensor tip makes integration simple

Actuator Sensor-interface
overview
www.ifm.com
AS-i is a simple solution for networking
actuators and sensors
An AS-interface network offers a simple, cost-efficient
alternative to conventional cabling at the lowest level of the
automation. This network can operate directly in conjunction
with an existing PLC or can be linked to a higher-level bus
system for low-cost remote I/O.

Before
Point-to-point wiring is still
the most common wiring
method found in industry.
One cable from each device
results in large wire bundles
running through the system.
Due to the sheer volume of
wires, installation time is
considerable and trouble-
shooting is complex.
After
AS-i network connects multi-
ple binary devices with only
one 2-wire cable, completely
eliminating wire bundles. Its
simple, plug-and-play wiring
supports all topologies and
eliminates device profiles and
expensive hardware.
Point-to-point wiring vs.
AS-i networking
Industrial automation systems require a large amount of
control devices. The number of binary actuators and sen-
sors placed on a typical system has grown over the years.
Current methods for wiring include point-to-point
connection or bus systems. However, point-to-point
wiring results in large wire bundles, and bus systems can
be too complex for networking simple binary devices.
As a solution to these challenges, ifm offers the Actuator
Sensor interface (AS-i), a simple network for actuators
and sensors. AS-i is cost-effective, easy to install, and
features modular components that offer design
flexibility. AS-i is a complete networking solution for
industrial control applications.
The AS-i network connects hundreds of sensors on a single two-wire cable. AS-i
I/O modules use quick plug-and-play functionality that simplifies installation.
ifm is an AS-interface founding member
ifm efector is one of 11 founding members of the
AS-Interface Association, established in 1990. AS-i is a
non-profit independent organization that is currently
supported by more than 100 vendors worldwide.

Industrial Ethernet (IE) is commonly applied as the networking protocol for automation
and plant control. IE is well known in industry, can carry large packets of data, and is
ideal for HMIs, PLCs, drives, and barcode scanners.
For bit-level data such as sensors and actuators which
account for 90% of devices in automation a lower level
I/O network, such as AS-i, is better suited for these devices.
AS-i offers a better alternative to wiring bit-level devices
and is an ideal complement to Industrial Ethernet at the I/O
level. A single Ethernet IP address can transmit up to 992
I/O points. AS-i uses quick plug-and-play functionality that
simplifies installation in the controls architecture.
Actuator Sensor-interface overview
Extremely fast system
Data transfer is fast less than 10 ms on a fully-loaded system of 248
inputs and 186 outputs.
Flexible topology
AS-i supports topologies including open tree, ring, star, and trunk and
drop lines to allow maximum design freedom.
Cost effective
Since actuators and sensors are among the least expensive devices on
a network, their connecting hardware should be comparable in price.
AS-is price-per-point is one of the best in industry.
A simple 2-wire flat cable
The normal collection of wire bundles are replaced by a single, two-wire
flat cable that carries both data and power.
Modular system
AS-is design flexibility makes it a true plug-and-play networking system.
Modular machines can be easily connected with the aid of splitter
modules to form a production line.
Insulation displacement
Insulation displacement technology enables fast connection to all
devices. The cable is pierced to make the electric connection and
features a mechanical profile to proper insure polarity.
Best fit
Actuator and sensor manufacturers developed AS-i for the sole purpose
of connecting actuators and sensors. Every component on the network
is specially designed to fit these binary devices.

Single or dual master options available
for application versatility
User-friendly display for setup and
diagnostics
AS-i Backplane Masters provide
connection of AS-i to most PLCs
AS-i can be connected to existing control platforms in two different ways:
Controls and gateway connection
In many cases, a high level bus system is installed in the plant. These bus systems
are designed for complex controls equipment such as drives, bar code scanners, etc.
These networks are not optimized for simple on/off devices, such as sensors.
Therefore, an easy way to apply an AS-i network is via a gateway connection.
The gateway becomes a node on the higher level bus and allows the connection
of sensors and actuators at a competitive price point.
ifm's AS-i Controller-E is designed for DeviceNet and Ethernet IP networks. The
SmartLink DP is available for Profibus networks. All of ifm's controllers incorporate
user-friendly displays for setup and diagnostics and fast response of up to 992
digital I/O points using version 3.0.
Backplane master connection
Backplane masters are designed to fit into a standard card slot in a PLC rack. ifm's
backplane masters are available with single or dual master options. The dual master
is capable of communicating with 992 digital I/O points. Inputs and outputs are
mapped directly to the I/O tables in the plc and programmed via the standard plc
software. No additional software is required.

Selectable 115/230 VAC input voltage

Power for the yellow AS-i cable
AS-i power supplies supply all devices connected to the yellow AS-i
cable. These are usually modules, connected sensors and intelligent actu-
ators. They provide an increased voltage of approximately 30 volts which
is converted by the modules into 24 V required for input devices.
In order to ensure the decoupling between AS-i data and the supply,
only approved AS-i power supplies may be used. AS-i is an unshielded
bus system that transports data and supplies energy on the same pair of
conductors. Because the AS-i network is an unshielded system, the volt-
age must not be grounded for reasons of symmetry.
Standard 24 V power supplies cannot be used instead of AS-i power
supplies for network power.

efector Octavis systems monitor operating conditions of food and
beverage processing equipment
ifms vibration monitors provide specific vibration monitoring on
components inside food processing equipment such as rolling element
bearings, rotational unbalances, and gear drive systems.
The systems on-board microprocessor directly calculates the machines
vibration characteristics and compares them to the allowable limits.
When the vibration levels exceed the allowable limits, the system
automatically sets alarm outputs or transfers the data over an Ethernet
network connection.
Innovative software
ifms Octavis software makes implementing a
continuous vibration monitoring solution easy.
Programming is straightforward using the wizard
guided configuration software. Analysis tools
included in the programming software give
users the ability to remotely
evaluate the machines
condition. A bar graph display
provides a quick overview of the
entire machines operating con-
ditions. The spectrum frequency
plots allow for comprehensive
analysis, and the trend history
chart plotter displays machine
condition changes over time.

Compact vibration sensors detect changing conditions of food processing
machinery to indicate machine damage
In most food plants, every piece of equipment has its own vibration level that can
change when it experiences unusual operating conditions. These changes can
indicate potential machine damage or failure.
The VK Series and VT Series vibration sensors are designed to permanently mount
on a machine to continuously monitor the machines vibration level. By detecting
vibration level changes when they first occur, these sensors can prevent food pro-
cessing equipment from catastrophically failing, reduce secondary damage and
eliminate expensive downtime.
The VK and VT sensors monitor vibration levels on:

Compressed air and specialty gas meter
efector Metris monitors compressed air and specialty gases such as argon (Ar),
carbon dioxide (CO
2
), and nitrogen (N
2
) to detect leakage areas and improve energy
efficiencies. Compressed gases are considered one of the most expensive sources
of energy consumption in a plant. By identifying leakage areas, efector Metris
can optimize compressed gas usage, improve system performance, and reduce
energy costs.
The compact sensor is fitted with an integrated pipe to ensure easy mounting and
proper installation depth. The sensors 4-digit numeric display provides air and gas
consumption readings and features microprocessor-based pushbutton setup. Three
display options are available: cubic feet per minute, cubic feet per hour, and total
consumed cubic feet. The 24 VDC unit provides switching, analog and pulse output
options.
Operating principle
efector Metris incorporates two ceramic sensing
elements that each contain a thermistor.
As one sensor element is heated, the second element is
used as a reference. Power is then altered to the heater
to ensure a constant temperature difference (CTD)
between the two elements.
efector metris
can be mounted
in a supply pipe
to monitor one
machine.
Or, mounted in
a plant zone to
monitor several
machines.

Why choose PVC cable material?
PVC is a polyvinylchloride material that offers excellent
mechanical strength and resistance to chemicals. PVC also
offers outstanding performance in a broad range of
temperature conditions and resists flame, heat, oxidation,
moisture and abrasion.
Advantages of EPDM O-rings
EPDM is a chemically cross-linked elastomer with excellent
flexibility at high and low temperatures. This material
provides exceptional insulation and strength as well as
resistance to abrasion. EPDM is particularly suited for the
caustic-cleaning environment found in the food and
beverage industry.
316 stainless steel coupling nuts are highly compatible with the food and beverage industry
316 stainless steel offers excellent corrosion resistance which is necessary in the food and beverage
industry. Stainless steel offers the longest protection against freezing and rusting. The smooth external
hexed-shaped coupling nut aids in the cleaning process and withstands harsh abrasion.
