Baumer06191Harsh environmental conditions and regular cleaning cycles often expose sensors to outdoor, sanitary and washdown applications. The IP protection classes IP 68 and IP 69K ensure that they can withstand these demanding conditions - tested in new condition. But what happens during the many years of hard work in the field? With "Protect +"has Baumer a solution to this challenge.

The sensors for object recognition such as optical or inductive sensors as well as sensors for force measurement have been developed according to the special Protect + design guidelines with special materials. The resulting tightness is additionally verified by a particularly stringent test procedure that the sensors undergo. The test series first simulated the aging effect sensors with thermal shock tests in the air and in the water and then the IP and IP 68 69K be carried out tests. Thus, sensors with Protect + guarantee maximum tightness over the entire life cycle. The insights gained from working in partnership with customers who operate machinery and equipment in extreme conditions are incorporated in the ongoing development of design guidelines and production processes.

So was among other things the Strain sensor DST55R designed for force measurement especially for harsh applications in mobile automation. Thanks to their intelligent design, the use of resistant materials and the well-thought-out sealing concept, the strain sensors are long-term insensitive to moisture and dust. Despite harsh environments and many cleaning cycles, the sensors provide reliable lifetime measurements thanks to Protect +.

More news from Baumer

  • User report Food and beverages In view of ever more individual customer requests and smaller lot sizes in high-wage countries, manufacturers can only remain competitive with sufficient process automation. High-performance and robust sensors are required here so that the systems become transparent. The Swiss sensor experts from Baumer work closely with their customers to create the right automation for their problems.
  • Sensors that deliver reliable and precise measured values ​​can create real added value with IO-Link. For greater flexibility, Baumer presents its sensors using the dual channel principle. The PP20H pressure sensor and the Combilyz AFI conductivity sensor from Baumer now offer even more interesting functions with the IO-Link interface. For example, they can be parameterized quickly and easily - even during operation. Thanks to the dual channel, the sensors can be operated simultaneously, digitally or via the respective channel.
  • With the fully digital inductive IO-Link sensors Alphaprox from Baumer the most extensive diagnostic data on the market can be generated. In addition to sensor temperature, operating time and operating voltage, the IO-Link sensors also record boot cycles, switching frequency and distance values. This information can easily be called up via the IO-Link interface and digitally processed in the controller. In addition, the sensors have a kind of memory.
  • The new smart “Verisens” XF900 and XC900 vision sensors from Baumer control the collaborative robots (cobots) from Universal Robots after just a few minutes of setup. The robot-compatible vision sensors are mounted directly on the cobot or above. Calibration with regard to image correction, conversion to world coordinates and coordinate comparison between the vision sensor and robot is carried out automatically and very easily thanks to the patent-pending Smartgrid.
  • SPS Hall 4A, Stand 335 Specialist article Baumer magnetic encoders of the EAM580 / 360 series work particularly reliably and precisely. The magnetic absolute encoders work with an angular accuracy of ± 0,15 degrees and thus enable precise positioning in the application.
  • SPS Hall 3, Booth 240 If a new Baumer sensor is installed in a machine, various parameters such as switching point, switching window, filter, sound beam width, output logic must first be set to the application. The parameter server function is the solution for a parameter transfer in seconds via the IO-Link interface.
  • SPS Hall 4A, Stand 335 Specialist article milk, water, lye, water, acid and again water: The rinsing of a plant for processing and filling food (Clean in Place, CIP) follows a sophisticated choreography of process steps, in which different liquids alternate Pipes and tanks flow. The "Combilyz" conductivity sensor from Baumer is an unbeatable helper in the phase separation of food, water and cleaning fluid.
  • FMB Hall 20, Booth E13 With the help of high-precision inductive sensors, significant added value can be generated in the production environment: All status of the components can be queried precisely and the predictive maintenance can thus be implemented. At Baumer, "Smart Gripping" starts digitizing the sensor.
  • Motek Hall 6, Booth 6104 Precise, contactless inline measurements without interrupting the production process using optical distance sensors are an important part of the production of high quality products. For demanding surfaces such as galvanized or brushed metal, the OM70 laser distance sensors with a linear beam from Baumer ensure the necessary reliability.
