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.
Screw-on strain sensors frequently provide a clever alternative to force measurement. Particularly for large forces, they are significantly more cost-efficient than force sensors. In addition, they allow different force ranges to be covered by just one sensor and can be integrated quickly and easily into existing machines and systems.
The smart multi-tool profile sensors OXM from Baumer enable fast solutions for individual measurement tasks thanks to measurement functions directly integrated in the sensor and their simplest usability. For even more precision, the OXM200 is now also available with a blue laser beam.
Baumer presents the Baumer Sensor Suite (BSS), a new PC software for evaluation, selection and parameterization of IO-Link devices. With this software, application developers can implement IO-Link devices more efficiently – particularly thanks to intuitive visualization of sensor functions.
Electrical and mechanical integration of encoders has become much easier and more economically viable. The new bearingless encoder EB200E from Baumer is proving this right. It can be compactly integrated on any axis without complex adaptation of the mechanics. EB200E is the first smart incremental bearingless encoder with IO-Link on the market.
With the PAD20 sensor series, Baumer offers an innovative solution to a previously unsolved problem: the detection of air and gas bubbles in process media. Awarded the Dairy Technology Prize 2021 in the category Environment and Sustainability, the sensor detects even smallest air and gas inclusions and, among other things, thus prevents pumps from running dry and the entailed facility downtime.
What medium is currently in the tank? Is the process proceeding as planned or are the values outside the tolerance limits? Plant operators can effortlessly get all this information at a glance with the robust 360° KingCrown process visualization.
