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.
Right in the midst of the chip crisis, Baumer provides a silver lining behind the clouds over the tense vision market. In August, the expert in industrial cameras and components for automated image processing managed to resume deliveries of USB cameras.
Sensor expert Baumer now has made continuous level measurement more convenient and easier. New sensor CombiLevel PLP70 automatically adapts to outstandingly varied media and offers user-friendly process monitoring thanks to the large touch display.
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.
At the Process Expo in Chicago, a panel of experts from the food processing industry selected the PP20H pressure sensor as the winner of the Innovations Showcase Award in the dairy product category. The pressure sensor prevailed among the 17 finalists due to its condensate-resistant silicon measuring cell, exceptional precision across the entire temperature range, and IO-Link interface.
