Storing behavioral user data for analytical purposes and statistics
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.
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 new smart VeriSens vision sensors XF900 and XC900 control the collaborating robots (cobots) of Universal Robots within only a few minutes of setting up. The robot-compatible vision sensors are mounted directly on the cobot or above it. Thanks to the SmartGrid (patent pending), calibration in terms of image distortion, conversion into world coordinates, and coordinate alignment between the vision sensor and robot take place automatically and extremely easy.
Baumer is equipping 25 camera models of the LX and CX series with the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to the IEEE 1588 Standard, in support of precise time synchronization in Ethernet networks. This allows applications to benefit from all advantages of a PTP-supported inspection system.
Baumer introduces fully digitized inductive IO-link sensors with the most comprehensive diagnostic data on the market. In addition to sensor temperature, operating voltage, and operating time, the sensors also collect the number of boot cycles, the switching frequency, and distances. When required, this information is easy to retrieve via the IO-link interface and can be directly digitally processed in the control.
The flexible adjustment of systems to short-term requirement changes as well is an increasingly frequent production challenge. The new CleverLevel PL20 level switches no longer have to be parameterized to a specific medium but adaptively adjust to the medium. This saves setup time while maintaining high process safety. Regardless of whether the media are liquid, paste-like, sticky, or granular – the CleverLevel PL20 recognizes them reliably and securely.
The Baumer magnetic encoders of the EAM580/360 series are unbeaten when it comes to reliability and precision. "No competitive product of similar robustness and longevity could be a match for them in terms of absolute angular precision," says Mr. Daniel Kleiner, Head of the Industrial Encoder Business Unit.
