In process automation, safety and reliability are of critical importance. To ensure this requires precise and robust sensors and measuring instruments that guarantee perfect measurement, control, monitoring, or fault analysis.
The new LXT cameras with integrated JPEG image compression allow image capture with very high resolution and speed via the widely available and easy-to-use GigE interface. This means, for example, that 500 frames/s with full HD or more than 1500 frames/s with SVGA can be used without any time limitations.
Compact machine designs with limited space, detection of very small objects, narrow gaps, or precise triggering - and at fast clock rates. These are just some of the application areas for the new optical O200 miniature sensors with focused laser light beam. The new laser variants now enable even higher precision in the detection of very small position differences, extremely narrow gaps, as well as small parts such as single wires or very fine threads with a diameter of only 0.05 mm.
Volumetric flow, flow velocity, and temperature measurement – three of the most important variables for efficient process control combined in a single sensor, the electromagnetic flow meter. Baumer is introducing two new product series at once – the compact PF55S for industrial applications and the PF75H/S series.
Everybody knows them, and right now they are more in use than ever: automatic hand sanitizers. Inside, optical miniature sensors with background suppression from Baumer ensure reliable and safe hand detection at switching distances from 15 to 300 mm, at any angle of incidence and even when the viewing window is soiled. And all this for the entire device lifetime.
The miniature-format strain sensors DST20 complement the Baumer portfolio by adding a compact and cost-efficient solution for measuring large forces above 10,000 N even in confined spaces. With their dimensions of 28x12x10 mm, the DST20 miniature strain sensors offer space savings that are unmatched by any other screw-on strain sensor on the market.
Starting immediately, Baumer is offering neoAPI and the Camera Explorer – two new free-of-charge software packages for fast, easy, and efficient camera integration. The software is available for PC- and ARM-based systems under Windows 7, Windows 10, and Linux.
