Ifm’s compact PQ Series pressure sensors measure a full range of pressure and vacuum typical in pneumatic applications.
The cube-shaped pneumatic pressure sensor easily retrofits traditional pressure switches. Measuring only 32mm x 30mm x 42mm, the compact sensor can be installed in areas with limited mounting space. Application parameters are established using 2 pushbuttons. The bright, 4-digit display indicates system pressure and can be clearly seen from long distances. The sensor features 2 programmable switching outputs or 1 switching and 1 diagnostic output. In addition, the values can be programmed to change color depending on the switching output status.
