Baumer is expanding the application range of its innovation SmartReflect: The new version of the light barrier without a reflector with a sensing range of up to two meters. The sensor’s large sensing distance and its compact housing of only 63 x 45 mm offer great flexibility in mechanical and plant design. This latest SmartReflect version is part of the new Series 25 that comprises three different photoelectric technologies.
With the SmartReflect Baumer has further improved the safest way of detecting objects in the field of photoelectric sensors: the physical interruption of a closed light barrier by an object. With the SmartReflect from Baumer, the closed light beam is set up between the sensor and a machine part, for example. Commonly used separate reflectors or receivers are no longer required. The color and material of the background and the object to be recognized are unimportant.
Particularly in the packaging industry, the graphics industry and in assembly and handling technology, SmartReflect proves its superiority: It is used whenever the installation of a separate reflector or receiver presents a real headache for plant engineers (e.g. due to insufficient installation space). Because the reflector is not required, this eliminates the reflector installation, commissioning, adjustment and cleaning costs which would otherwise be necessary, resulting in about 50 percent time savings. All in all, the SmartReflect offers measurable added value through the reduction of operating costs and by maximum (process) reliability.
