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.
Thanks to the unique sensor element, the sensor families U500 and UR18 with IO-Link are not only more robust than all comparable sensors on the market, but their extremely short blind range at yet very long sensing distance brings requirements to a whole new level.
Greater sensitivity, improved image quality, and frame rates of more than 1500 fps – six new LXT cameras with resolutions from 0.5 to 7.1 megapixels combine 3rd generation Sony Pregius CMOS sensors with 10 GigE, thus allowing considerable performance improvements. With a pixel size of 4.5 or 9 µm, the cameras offer very high sensitivity. This way, they provide better support for applications with a short exposure time or NIR illumination, for example.
Digital communication opens up many opportunities – but only sensors that reliably deliver precise measured values offer real added value by IO-Link. Well established and appreciated by many users, both pressure sensor PP20H and CombiLyz AFI conductivity sensor excel by outstanding measuring performance and IO-Link interface, but now they offer even more interesting features such as simple and fast parameterization- even during operation.
The temperature sensors TE2 and TCR6 are the latest addition to the railway portfolio of Baumer. They have now been tested according to the EN50155 standard and therefore approved for all types of railway vehicles. They encompass the entire sector and technology competence of Baumer, which offers customers clear added value – high flexibility, especially when it comes to the selection and configuration of the sensors, coupled with the Baumer measurement accuracy.
New BPIV2 by Baumer is a self-supported multi-unit axle encoder. Succeeding the very successful BPIV and BMIV encoders, BPIV2 hosts four independent encoders and each can be separately configured. No competitive product on the market provides this benefit. The axle encoder is quickly and safely installed. There is no need for axle-specific adjustments thanks to one-cable overall signal transmission, which considerably cuts down on installation effort.
Delivering the largest choice of digital secondary data of present-day market, the AlphaProx inductive distance sensors convinced the editorial team of the “Elektronik” magazine. Nominated in the category "Measurement and Sensor Technology", the sensors keep their competitive edge against a great number of measurement technology innovations.
