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.
Baumer presents the AX smart cameras, its first industrial-grade smart cameras that combine the market-leading NVIDIA Jetson modules with powerful Sony CMOS sensors to create a compact, flexible, and freely programmable image processing platform for AI applications.
For ships out in rough seas, the failure of machinery on deck means an end to the journey or considerably slowed maneuvers, including the associated high financial costs. For this reason, some components are often replaced every time the machine is serviced. The new incremental rotary encoder POG 83 withstands all adverse conditions on deck without failures, offering a service life of several maintenance intervals for winches and cranes.
Two new 65 megapixel cameras enhance the Baumer portfolio of high-resolution and robust 10 GigE cameras of the LX series. Thanks to an integrated EF mount, Canon EF lenses are easily configured via Baumer GAPI, Baumer neoAPI, or third party software to allow the focus and the aperture to be dynamically matched to the applications.
Baumer is expanding its CX series with the 4th Sony CMOS sensor generation Pregius S with up to 24 megapixel resolution. Thanks to a pixel size of mere 2.74 µm and backside illumination pixel architecture, the camera has a very compact design of 29×29 mm and offers very high resolutions with excellent image quality and improved sensitivity for stable image evaluations.
The Baumer inductive distance sensor family IF08 now extended by small cubic designs in stainless steel housings with a yet large measurement range up to 3 mm and setting options via IO Link interface is outstanding and unique on the market. This way, the sensors provide double benefit.
It is often difficult to integrate the rotary encoder in applications with moving parts and limited installation space. However, precise position measurement in the smallest possible design is essential especially in medical technology or for attachments in mobile automation. This is why Baumer is enhancing its product portfolio of the MAGRES EAM series with the EAM300, the smallest absolute multi-turn encoder with CANopen interface.
