Baumer sensors were developed to guarantee outstanding impermeability over their entire service life. While sensors in other impermeability tests are only tested for their water impermeability when new, the proTect+ testing process first simulates the effects of aging on the sensors. After aging, the sensors are subjected to impermeability tests in accordance with the specific IP protection class guidelines in order to guarantee impermeability.
To guarantee their absolute impermeability, the sensors are subjected to extensive stress tests. The following tests are carried out on several sensors:
Sensors with proTect+ are particularly suitable for harsh industrial environments, most notably in outdoor, hygienic and washdown applications where the sensors are exposed to repeated cleaning cycles and aggressive chemicals. Once you use them, these sensors will quickly convince you of their reliability and impermeability in challenging applications.
