Prevent your process valve from failing

Featured Product from ifm electronic gmbh

What if you could prevent your process valve from failing?
ifm’s innovative MVQ Smart Valve Sensor provides preventive maintenance diagnostics while continuously monitoring the position of quarter-turn valves.

The sensor features built-in functions that can identify different wear conditions via IO-Link, ifm’s digital communication interface. The sensor can indicate a change in the valve’s operation, which can be a warning that deposits are interfering with the valve’s ability to close or that the seal is wearing.

  • MVQ Smart Valve Sensor provides continuous valve position feedback and predictive information alerting to early signals of industrial valve failures.
  • Valve open / valve closed indication is visible from a distance
  • Easy set up via teach button or IO-Link, ifm’s digital communication interface
  • Diagnostic functions via IO-Link allows the sensor to identify different wear conditions.
