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 inductive sensors include integrated measured value filters with five pre-set filters, which significantly simplifies the evaluation process through the parameterization of the primary sensor function via the IO-Link interface and reduces the variant diversity. Applications with very high demands for resolution or speed can be resolved with a single sensor type.
The new laser distance sensor families OM20 and OM30 with IO-Link are perfectly suited to continue the trend towards more efficient, compact machines and systems without any compromise regarding the sensor performance in optical distance measurement applications.
The Baumer optoelectronic sensors O200 are the first miniature sensors on the market to offer 3D CAD data with integrated beam path. This saves valuable time in the engineering process, which previously was quite an effort when integrating the beam path from data sheets.
Inline quality controls play an increasingly important role in the production process. They reduce downtimes and reject rates, thus ensuring lower costs and high customer loyalty. Up to now, such solutions could usually only be realized through complex projects and thus high costs. The OXM200 2D multi-tool profile sensors now offer the possibility to check a large number of process steps quickly and easily.
The automated coordinate alignment of the robot-compatible VeriSens XF/XC900 vision sensors from Baumer convinced the expert jury of the inspect award 2021. Out of nine finalist products in the online voting, the sensors were awarded first place in the category Vision. The award granted by the publisher Wiley-VCH every year honors the most innovative products in the field of industrial image processing.
In visual inspection systems, images must be captured exactly at the moment the (usually moving) object is precisely underneath the lens and illumination is being activated. Sounds simple – but the devil is in the detail. Our technical report identifies these potential pitfalls and shows ways round by selecting the right hardware and together with the right software settings.
