Funktionsprinzp of the optical sensor O500
The O500 in hygienic design is the world's first sensor in which the sensing range can be adjusted by magnetic Teach directly on the device. The wash-range Baumer equipped with self-developed programming process "Qteach". This ensures an easy, time-saving installation and wear-free operation. To teach the sensors covers a touch of the closed case with any ferromagnetic tool such as an Allen wrench or screwdriver.
The EHEDG-compliant housing design made of stainless steel attachment prevents any possible contamination. Thanks to the impermeability concept developed by Baumer "Protect +" the O500 stainless steel sensors meet the long-term requirements of protection class IP 69K. Highest resistance and long life of the sensors are guaranteed.
By IO-Link integrated in the sensor diagnostics and parameterization can be used to optimize processes in demanding environments such as the food industry. The advantages are in the fast and automated commissioning, individually optimized maintenance and significantly increased process reliability thanks to the ability to detect sensor states early and optimal process to fix.
