Gettorf - The sensor specialist EGE is expanding its proven series of inductive proximity switches with new models from the IGMO series, which are especially suitable for use in offshore and underwater applications. The devices, whose housing is made of PTFE and stainless steel 1.4571, can be used permanently at a depth of up to 300 m - this corresponds to a pressure of 30 bar. The cable of the sensor is longitudinally watertight: Even if the cable sleeve is damaged or completely severed, no water can get into the sensor or the control cabinet through the cable.
The devices can be used at ambient temperatures from -25 to +70 ° C. They are available in the types M12, M18 and M30.

Picture: Even if the cable is cut, it does not become a garden hose:
