ifm: Temporary Housing Color Change


August 16, 2021

Due to limited raw material availability, some products may be delivered in black PBT plastic instead of their normal orange color. Technically, there is no difference in the material other than the color and the products will also carry the same approvals.

At this moment, it is unclear how long the delivery constraints will last on the orange PBT plastic, but in order to maintain product availability, ifm will deliver them in black as needed.

The list of affected part numbers are shown in the table below and a notification will be placed on the datasheet page for each product.

IG0005 IG0101 IG5369 IG5533 IG5947
IG0006 IG0325 IG5399 IG5564 IG5956
