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.
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 integrates on any axis in a compact way and does not require any modification effort in terms of mechanics. It is the first smart bearingless incremental 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.
The new DAB10 measuring amplifiers with IO-Link simplify commissioning and enable optimum parameterization of additional functions and signal conditioning for all strain gauge-based force sensors of any manufacturer. Thanks to parameterization via IO-Link, users can also profit from these benefits when using conventional analogue outputs. The measuring amplifier is available as an all-IO-Link variant or as a variant with voltage or current output with two additional digital I/Os. Force measurement has never been easier while being future-oriented in parallel.
